Building Bridges To JavaScript

Here’s some compelling investigative work by Nigel Brooke that Apple is going to go public with an Objective-C/JavaScript bridge. It’s been possible to communicate back and forth with a JavaScript runtime using hidden UIWebViews for a while, but Nigel points out some commits to WebKit that hint to something much more official in the works.

Hey, Apple could even convert Objective-C code to JavaScript at this point. :)
