CoffeeScript vs Qore: What are the differences?

CoffeeScript: A little language that compiles into JavaScript. It adds syntactic sugar inspired by Ruby, Python and Haskell in an effort to enhance JavaScript's brevity and readability. Specific additional features include list comprehension and de-structuring assignment; Qore: Embeddable Multithreaded Programming Language. It is an interpreted scripting language with multithreading and thread-safe programming, optional strong typing and exception handling, code embedding and sandboxing and automatic memory management and c++ style destructors.

CoffeeScript and Qore belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by CoffeeScript are:

  • String Interpolation
  • Statement Modifiers
  • Callback Handling

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
