Yes, you right.

That is what I looking for!

I do not want to use ExtPascal because it depends on ExtJS and their
documents (to generate the Pascal code). I wish I could choose the
JavaScript framework.

Your project is open source?
I'm very interested about that. Do you use some "template engine" for UI?
The tecnology WebBroker (old Delphi) had macros for replace in events
like #name or #salary. That is very simply but very coupled. We had
HTML code coupled with Pascal code. The designers could not easily
change UI code because that.
