What I want is to be able to run (and/or unit test) a NodeJS app (on the built-in V8). As an extra output I would like a transformed version of the source, annotated with Google Closure JSDoc Type Expressions.
I can't see any technical reason why this would not be possible.
Who will write this? It's probably a few weeks of fulltime work, or more if you don't already know the innards of V8.
Why would it be useful?
- It allows the flexibility of untyped development, without the maintenance burden.
- A developer will quickly spot any unexpected types, leading to bug fixes.
Please Google, Joyent, or Anyone Else, can you write this for us?
