Yes. Any attempt to avoid this is futile.

I tried 2 concepts (one of the ExtPascal). 
You ALWAYS end up writing javascript for particular cases.

So, better bite the bullet and do the lot in Javascript 
directly, using the tools available in Javascript.
Even the folks at Google came to this conclusion.

What I do endorse is converting Pascal to Javascript directly.
Pascal is better suited for large projects: classes, type safety and so on...
