Not meaning to discourage any effort here - a JS implementation in
erlang might be an interesting project and have some uses, and as others
have pointed out implementing languages is fun - the goal of "... for
the masses" is misguided. Syntax isn't the problem - if it was, we'd
all be programming in COBOL. Sure, erlang syntax is a little different,
but its the programming philosophy that is alot different, and putting a
Unless you're going to be able to accurately translate idiomatic
that uses a single process with no message passing, no exception
handling, no matching, etc., and then it really isn't erlang anymore.
