What is and Why CoffeeScript? 

  • 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) 
  • CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way 
    • The compiled output is readable and pretty-printed 
    • Work in every JavaScript runtime, and compiled code tends to run as fast or faster than the equivalent handwritten JavaScript
