CoffeeScript vs MATLAB: What are the differences?

Developers describe CoffeeScript as "Unfancy JavaScript". CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. Underneath that awkward Java-esque patina, JavaScript has always had a gorgeous heart. CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way. On the other hand, MATLAB is detailed as "A high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming". Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

CoffeeScript and MATLAB can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Easy to read" is the primary reason why developers consider CoffeeScript over the competitors, whereas "Simulink" was stated as the key factor in picking MATLAB.

CoffeeScript is an open source tool with 15.2K GitHub stars and 1.99K GitHub forks. Here's a link to CoffeeScript's open source repository on GitHub.

Code School, Zaarly, and thoughtbot are some of the popular companies that use CoffeeScript, whereas MATLAB is used by Empatica, Wham City Lights, and Walter. CoffeeScript has a broader approval, being mentioned in 364 company stacks & 170 developers stacks; compared to MATLAB, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to CoffeeScript and MATLAB?
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.
TypeScript
TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
ES6
Goals for ECMAScript 2015 include providing better support for large applications, library creation, and for use of ECMAScript as a compilation target for other languages. Some of its major enhancements include modules, class declarations, lexical block scoping, iterators and generators, promises for asynchronous programming, destructuring patterns, and proper tail calls.
Babel
Babel will turn your ES6+ code into ES5 friendly code, so you can start using it right now without waiting for browser support.
jQuery
jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

All of our Javascript code is first written in CoffeeScript for ease of reading / writing. It is compiled to Javascript before being minified and served to the client.

All front-end / back-end is driven by Coffeescript. For the main ReactJS functionality JSX is embedded with coffee in .cjsx files / handled by Browserify.

We like CoffeeScript because it's more readable, we use it because we have a lot of libraries and functions already (plays nicely with Rails, too)
