Howdy all,

I am interested in packaging for Debian some JavaScript code that is a
self-contained program.

Such programs are designed, by their authors, to be downloaded to a
directory and loaded from there into the user's choice of browser.

To package such a program for Debian – into a hypothetical Debian binary
package ‘ipsum’ – I expect that installing that package will give a
command-line executable program, which launches and runs.

Is that a reasonable expectation?

Is there an existing convention for Debian JavaScript packages that are
intended to install end-user local programs, that happen to be written
in JavaScript for a browser?

If this doesn't yet exist, how would we do this in Debian today?
