ClojureScript vs Unison: What are the differences?

ClojureScript: A Clojure compiler targeting JavaScript. ClojureScript is a compiler for Clojure that targets JavaScript. It is designed to emit JavaScript code which is compatible with the advanced compilation mode of the Google Closure optimizing compiler; Unison: Modern, statically-typed purely functional programming language. It is an open source functional programming language based on a simple idea with big implications: code is content-addressed and immutable.

ClojureScript and Unison belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

ClojureScript and Unison are both open source tools. ClojureScript with 8.19K GitHub stars and 725 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Unison with 2.53K GitHub stars and 110 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to ClojureScript and Unison?
        JavaScript
        JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
        Elm
        Writing HTML apps is super easy with elm-lang/html. Not only does it render extremely fast, it also quietly guides you towards well-architected code.
        Clojure
        Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
        TypeScript
        TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
        AngularJS
        AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
