Description

What is Underscore?

Underscore is a JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects. It’s the answer to the question: “If I sit down in front of a blank HTML page, and want to start being productive immediately, what do I need?” … and the tie to go along with jQuery's tux and Backbone's suspenders.

What is Prepack?

Prepack is a partial evaluator for JavaScript. Prepack rewrites a JavaScript bundle, resulting in JavaScript code that executes more efficiently. For initialization-heavy code, Prepack works best in an environment where JavaScript parsing is effectively cached.

What is decaffeinate?

Convert your CoffeeScript source to modern JavaScript with decaffeinate. For real-world use cases, spend some time understanding the different options and nuances of the decaffeinate tool.
