I, briefly, worked at a company named Apportable.   This is something they were working on near the end of my tenure there.   Unfortunately, I was not involved in that effort.  The idea was to be able to port any iOS app to the web.   It is definitely possible and I would love to see GNUstep apps able to run like this.

This would be ultimate to bring GNUstep apps (at least a GNUstep thin client to GNUstep apps running on a server) to every common platform (OS). I would love to see that happening. Has anybody already given that a try?
