Offering an easy access to programming languages that are difficult to approach directly dramatically reduces the inhibition threshold. The Generative Modeling Language is such a language and can be described as being similar to Adobe's PostScript. A major drawback of all PostScript dialects is their unintuitive reverse Polish notation, which makes both - reading and writing - a cumbersome task. A language should offer a structured and intuitive syntax in order to increase efficiency and avoid frustration during the creation of code. To overcome this issue, the authors present a new approach to translate JavaScript code to GML automatically.
