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

  •        53

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.

Caffeine is an awesome Java caching library. It has an impressive performance and a neat Java 8 API. However the API does not play very well with Scala. So this is the thinner wrapper we can came with to make Caffeine easy and idiomatic to use in Scala.

CoffeeScript - Little language that compiles into 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.

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

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.

TypeScript - Superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output

TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript. TypeScript adds optional types, classes, and modules to JavaScript. TypeScript supports tools for large-scale JavaScript applications for any browser, for any host, on any OS. TypeScript compiles to readable, standards-based JavaScript

Clojurescript - Clojure to JS compiler

ClojureScript is a compiler for Clojure that targets JavaScript. It is designed to emit JavaScript code which is compatible with the advanced compilation mode of the Google Closure optimizing compiler. ClojureScript combines the reach of the JavaScript platform, the flexibility and interactive development of Clojure, and the whole-program optimization of Google Closure to provide the most powerful language for programming the web.

gocaml - :camel: Practical statically typed functional programming language implementation with Go and LLVM

GoCaml is subset of OCaml in Go based on MinCaml using LLVM. GoCaml adds many features to original MinCaml. MinCaml is a minimal subset of OCaml for educational purpose. It is statically-typed and compiled into a binary. This project aims incremental compiler development for my own programming language. Type inference, closure transform, mid-level IR are implemented.

continuation - A compiler for JavaScript asynchronous Continuation-Passing Style transformation

Continuation.js is a compiler for Continuation-Passing Style transformation, which simplifies asynchronous JavaScript programming. It translates slightly flavored JavaScript syntax into standard JavaScript, so it can be also called a "translator". Continuation.js introduces a virtual function cont, which allow you to write continuation-passing style code (or asynchronous callback style code) far easier. cont is not a actual function, but a mark with the same syntax to function calls in JavaScript. By using Continuation.js you can write asynchronous control flows like flat threaded code, and it compiles it into continuation-passing style code. The code above is flatted by using the virtual function cont. Control flow must "wait" for the return of asynchronous function call fs.readFile. Parameters in the argument list of cont will be set after it returns. "Return" here is a little confusing because in an asynchronous function "return" means callback function called, not "return" in the literal sense. An asynchronous function usually returns immediately (by encountering return statement or the end of the function scope) while the callback function could be called later. You can be understood as all the statements after cont until the end of the function are the callback function of the asynchronous function call. The code feels like threaded code, but it is still asynchronous while executing.

Eta - A powerful language for building scalable systems on the JVM

Eta is a pure, lazy, strongly typed functional programming language on the JVM. It is a dialect of Haskell on the JVM. It is pure by default which means that calling a function with the same arguments will yield the same results every time. It is lazy by default which means that data stays in unevaluated state until a function needs to peek inside.
