LOL. To more-or-less quote Woody Allen's gag:
person 1: "This restaurant's food is terrible"
person 2: "Yeah, and the portions are so small"

If I understand correctly, the OP just wants to use JavaScript libraries along with LCS.
How could this be possible? Maybe, Compiling a JavaScript Engine as a LC external?

As far as I understand things . . .

The OP wants the IDE, the objects and the functionality of LiveCode but with
JavaScript in the scriptEditor . . . .

But . . . I thought LiveCode could already work with other languages . . .

Given that it's the OP's first and only post I suggest we ignore the troll.

Remember that today you could use perl and Lua
with Livecode:

And Adobe Director already had Lingo and Javascript syntax:
