    Flexible Scala code linting tool

    By contrast, Java and ECMAScript are essentially what we might call "classical" imperative OOP languages, although ECMAScript reveals much more of its Lisp-inspired "map/filter/reduce" FP roots. IMO ESLint is essentially table stakes for working with ECMAScript, but honestly, I wouldn't stop there and would insist on working in TypeScript, including some of the tooling for ESLint specifically for TypeScript, dialing type-safety up to 11, effectively like using Wart Remover with Scala.

    the only javascript runtime to hit no.1 on techempower :fire: (by just-js)

    Not at all. Javascript, as well as java compiled into the bytecode, but just incrementally and at the runtime. You cannot compile typescript into bytecode directly (at least it intend to be like that). You can even compile js to executable (https://github.com/just-js/just). So no, typescript transpiles to javascript, whereas scala compiles to bytecode, it's different things
