Transpiling code

Transpiling code to JavaScript, has become a widely accepted practice, even within the JavaScript community itself. For instance, the Babel transpiler allows developers to code in yet-to-be-released future standards of the JavaScript language, which get transpiled into the widely accepted standard JavaScript code that's currently supported in the major web browsers.

Within this context, it is not outlandish, or far-fetched, to run Go programs, that get transpiled into JavaScript code, in the web browser. In fact, besides static type checking, there are many more benefits to be gained from being able to run Go on the front-end.
