Objective-J compiler for NodObjC

This is a work in progress!!!

This is a fork of the Cappuccino Objective-J preprocessor that outputs valid NodObjC syntax. The major difference is that you specify regular official Cocoa classes like NSString.


Install with npm:

$ npm install -g objj


@import <Foundation>

// creating a new Class, inheriting from NSObject
@implementation Person : NSObject {
  NSString *name;
- (id)initWithName: (NSString *) aName {
  self = [super init];
  [self setName: name];
  return self;

- (void) setName: (NSString *) aName {
  name = aName;

- (NSString *) name {
  return name;

+ (id) allocWithName: (NSString *)aName {
  return [[self alloc] initWithName: aName];

// create an NSAutoreleasePool instance
var pool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];

// create one of our Person instances
var person = [Person allocWithName: @"Nathan"];
console.log([person name]);
// "Nathan"
