Convert Java Script functions to extension

Extensions are written in java and JavaScript cannot be converted to Java.
Things you can do

  • make an extension which do the same calculation/logic
  • Use webview for executing javascript
  • create a backend with javascript and do apo call using web component

What would programming as an extension cost?

I can try to make JavaScript evaluation

@Jerin_Jacob possibly, this library is bit closer to what he wants

It works using webview which is already present as component.

Yes web viewer will does in simple if he use correct js code


You could just simply do this using a webview, creating another extension looks unnecessary. There is a block to eval JS in Kodular.


I agree with @Still-learning @Xoma, Developing an extension is unnecessary. You can simply use webview component and execute javascripts.


And the topic should be in Discuss or Marketplace request category.


My problem is, I have no idea about Javascript. I wrote a procedure for “gk2geo” with an Excel calculation. But I also need the other functions.

Maybe explain us more?

may i know what are you trying to achieve

Don’t know if this helps

I have a CSV file with Gauss-Krueger survey data. In order to be able to show them on the map, I have to convert them to GPS. That already works with the procedure. But then the coordinates are not yet accurate. Function “pot2wgs” and
“wgs2pot” ensure more accuracy.

Fail to implement this function.

If you already have a function writen in JavaScript, no need to write again with blocks, just use the Webview.evalulateJs to run this function.

Can you describe how I can get the return values?

Use ‘after java script evaluated’ block which has return values

after doing a search in the community you could have found this extension
