Comment on "First Look at Cappuccino and Objective-J"
by Scott Stevenson — Sep 10
@Michael Ellis: Objective-C is a great language, but it's not the language that's supported in web browsers, JavaScript is

Objective-J translates the code into JavaScript, so the browser doesn't need to support it at all. There's also tool for pre-interpretting the Objective-J code (essentially, "compiling") ahead of time.

Requiring people to write their applications in Objective-J instead of JavaScript means that Cappuccino will be ignored large numbers of web developers who might otherwise have considered it

I'm sure the developers know that. Their main goal may not be to sway existing JavaScript developers, but rather to enable Mac and iPhone developers to take their expertise and write web apps.
