The History Of JavaScript ⌛

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • TypeScript

    TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output.

    Typescript was created by Microsoft, it’s a strict syntactical superset of JavaScript, and adds optional static typing to the language. The browser cannot understand a file written in Typescript so it needs to be compiled into standard JavaScript code so it can run.

  • node

    Node.js JavaScript runtime :sparkles::turtle::rocket::sparkles:

    Dart is an object-orientated JavaScript language made by Google. Dart is used to create highly complex and easily scalable apps for the web, mobiles. Dart has been approved by ECMA like vanilla JavaScript. Dart uses a different syntax than vanilla JavaScript but it can be translated into vanilla so it can be used in a browser. Node.js is a cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that runs on the V8 engine and executes JavaScript code outside a web browser. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command-line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser. React is a JavaScript front-end library for building user interfaces or UI components. It is maintained by Facebook and a community of individual developers and companies. React is mainly used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications. Jquery was made to simplify JavaScript making it easier to learn. It takes a lot of common JavaScript tasks that need lots of code to write in vanilla and wrap them into a single line. The Jquery contains features like DOM traversal and manipulation, event handling, Animation, and even Ajax. Jquery doesn’t need to be compiled and will run in all major browsers.

  • coffeescript

    Unfancy JavaScript

    CoffeeScript adds syntax sugar to JavaScript that makes it in an effort to enhance JavaScript’s brevity and readability. Its also not understood by rowsers and needs complied into standard JavaScript.
