Modern web development is a torrent of rapid change and maze of incompatibility. There are countless web development frameworks to meet the demands of the modern internet, but many popular frameworks conflict with each other. New frameworks bring new features and techniques, but developers typically need to throw away their previous work and start over to use them. Our project examined ways to make frameworks interoperate and to use code written for older frameworks in newer ones, an issue of particular value to Google.
