More techniques/tools for Scala - to - C++


#1

I’ve started running into a few tools related to either adding Scala features into C++, or targeting/translating Scala to a non-JVM environment. I’m starting this topic just as a placeholder for links to those things.

jtransc can convert Java/Kotlin/Scala to run on non-JVM runtimes, in particular
either JavaScript (for running Scala in a browser) or C++ with its own runtime
library jtransc-rt-core. With the reliance on jtransc-rt-core I’m not sure how much
this ends up looking authentic C++ - I think it does at least convert String to
std::string.
