List of languages that compile to JS

List of languages that compile to JS · jashkenas/coffee-script Wiki.

This is kind of off the wall. I hadn’t realized things had spiraled the way they have but seeing this list can really make you think. I know JavaScript is a unique thing, but I think we can have a lot of discussion as to why people are putting so much effort into these abstraction layers instead of sticking with plain old JavaScript. You don’t see this happening much with other languages, but this is a heck of a list!
