This collection of JavaScript libraries only scratches the surface because a wide collection of translators and emulators makes it possible to run practically any language in your browser. Pyjamas is a rich development platform built around a Python-to-JavaScript compiler. The Google Web Toolkit converts Java into JavaScript, and RubyJS converts Ruby.
