+1 browser-side Perl 6 would provide huge boost to the language.
+1, pmurias is the perfect fit for this task.
+1, pmurias is the best choice for this grant to success.
This would be awesome
+1 I think that would be a great boost to the language and I am eager to reimplement my frontends with perl6.
+1: pmurias has already been working on the JS backend for NQP for quite some time, and has *greatly* expanded the NQP test suite as he did so. He's got a proven track record and is by far the best choice for this grant -- and having full Rakudo working on both node.js and Chrome would be a huge win.
Perl 6 needs this (and more like this) to show the world how awesome it is (it already is, and this will make it even more awesome). So, please:
+1: I am so psyched about this that I will make an additional (small :) ) donation to TPF if it goes forward! This will open us up to some very interesting experiments.
I think node's strength is the ability for frontend devs to code backends, without a need to learn a new language.
This project will create a niche for the Perl 6 language to become one that can be used in the backend as well as the frontend, possibly increasing its adoption.
The monetary amount requested, however, is very small for the amount of work to be done, so my vote on this is +0.4
A lot of the trick dart2js seem potentially very helpful to us.
