There is.

Normally, early december a RC version of pas2js will be released.
pasjs currently is more or less at the level of D7 compatibility (minus interfaces and
pointers). There is a web-based compiler (i.e. you can do 'hot reload' as found in many
web development systems) etc.

Many basic RTL units work, there is access to all browser features or
node.js. you can import any javascript library (e.g. jquery is available)
using an import unit.

TDataset now also works, pas2js will ship with simple REST connection and
JSON Dataset components.

In short, everything to develop Pascal programs that run in the browser:
FPC will be a full development stack for web applications.

It will also be fully integrated in Lazarus.
