Coffeescript

CoffeeScript is a programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It provides syntactic sugar and features not found in the standard JavaScript syntax, making it easier to write and read without losing the language's expressiveness. By taking advantage of some of the newest ES6/ES7 features, it simplifies code structure and improves developer productivity. CoffeeScript has a clean syntax with fewer characters than JavaScript, making the code more concise. The tooling around CoffeeScript is mature and supports integration with frameworks such as Node.js or for front-end web development using libraries like jQuery or AngularJS.
