CaffeineScript(BETA) - A beautiful, fun language designed to maximize your JavaScript productivity

  •        61

CaffeineScript is an open-source programming language that compiles to JavaScript. The goal is to minimize total effort, over a product's lifetime, for the entire team. Design thinking is essential for achieving that goal. That means user-experience and graphic design are as important as computer-science and software engineering. A well-designed language makes code more beautiful, programming more fun, and, ultimately, lets us get more done with less effort.

CaffeineScript starts where CoffeeScripts left off, fixing its shortcomings and taking a big step forward for high-productivity javascript. Two concrete examples: improved React-style programming and 90% reduced module-specific code. The result is a lean, high-level language that empowers you to get the most out of JavaScript.

CoffeeScript - Little language that compiles into JavaScript

  •    Javascript

CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. It's just JavaScript, the code compiles one-to-one into the equivalent JS, and there is no interpretation at runtime. You can use any existing JavaScript library seamlessly from CoffeeScript (and vice-versa). The compiled output is readable and pretty-printed, will work in every JavaScript runtime, and tends to run as fast or faster than the equivalent handwritten JavaScript.

LiveScript - LiveScript is a language which compiles to JavaScript

  •    LiveScript

is a language which compiles to JavaScript. It has a straightforward mapping to JavaScript and allows you to write expressive code devoid of repetitive boilerplate. While LiveScript adds many features to assist in functional style programming, it also has many improvements for object oriented and imperative programming. Check out for more information, examples, usage, and a language reference.

Shem - The compiler of the programming language Shem

  •    CoffeeScript

Shem is a new compiled-to-JS, statically typed, pure-by-default functional programming language. The semantics are based on Haskell but the language evaluates strictly in a similar way to PureScript. The syntax is S-expressions-based, allowing for a full-blown LISP-like macro system. Shem's prelude includes a full-featured, highly-polymorphic collections library backed by ImmutableJS. The language has been designed for the use within its custom built IDE, Golem available at, inspired by Bret Victor.

kal - A powerful, easy-to-use, and easy-to-read programming language for the future.

  •    Javascript

Kal is a highly readable, easy-to-use language that compiles to JavaScript. It's designed to be asynchronous and can run both on node.js and in the browser. Kal makes asynchronous programming easy and clean by allowing functions to pause and wait for I/O, replacing an awkward callback syntax with a clean, simple syntax.

red - Red is a next-generation programming language strongly inspired by Rebol, but with a broader field of usage thanks to its native-code compiler, from system programming to high-level scripting and cross-platform reactive GUI, while providing modern support for concurrency, all in a zero-install, zero-config, single 1MB file!

  •    Red

Red is a new programming language strongly inspired by Rebol, but with a broader field of usage thanks to its native-code compiler, from system programming to high-level scripting, while providing modern support for concurrency and multi-core CPUs. Red has its own complete cross-platform toolchain, featuring two compilers, an interpreter and a linker, not depending on any third-party library, except for a Rebol2 interpreter, required during the bootstrap phase. Once complete, Red will be self-hosted.

Bucklescript - A backend for the OCaml compiler which emits JavaScript.

  •    OCaml

BuckleScript leverages the existing OCaml compiler and toolchain to produce JavaScript that closely resembles the original OCaml. It isn't a new language. It simply takes OCaml, a fast, pragmatic and typed language, and makes it compile to clean, readable and performant JavaScript code. This allows the users to write in an industrial-strength language while using the existing, familiar JavaScript tools (npm/yarn, bundlers, minifiers, devtools, etc.) and accessing the vast ecosystem from both JavaScript and OCaml.
