Converts your Groovy or Java code to JavaScript(Groovy 2.x to Javascript ECMAScript 5). You need groovy jar greater than 2.0 to make conversions. For more information about the project, see

Not a full groovy to javascript conversion. Some groovy and java features not supported, check documentation for more info. Converted code, needs grooscript.js to run. grooscript.js inside the jar in META-INF/resources for servlet 3.0 support. Also a Node.js npm module imports it.

Try online conversions here. Can convert .java and .groovy files or a text fragment as:


import org.grooscript.GrooScript

def result = GrooScript.convert '''
    def sayHello = { println "Hello ${it}!" }
    ['Groovy','JavaScript','GrooScript'].each sayHello'''

println result
