Type of Language (Server-side / Client-side)

+4 Sheldon Juncker · February 4, 2015
Now, we have a name a GitHub repository, and thanks to Abdullah, we'll soon have a logo and a temporary website.

Abdullah was asking me if the language would be like CoffeeScript or TypeScript. A language like this would be translated to JavaScript.

Originally we'd planned on making a server-side web development language.

Which type of language do you think that we should create?

(Deciding this shouldn't take as long as deciding on a name. :) )

Yes I agree, it would be a good start. I think now it is time to discuss partition of work and things to do. I also suggest finding a better way of communication between developers. Like IRC channel or an online conference of sometype.

Yes, i would like that, but i really have no idea how to do it

i agreeee ^ a language that is converted to js would be easier to accomplish

So, is everyone wanting to make a Typescript / Coffeescript type language? Speak now, or forever hold your peace.

Ok thanks! I'll go do some research on flex, and bison!

Probably by a couple hundredths of a second. :)  

The second option is better performance-wise but it is easier on the developer as code does not have to be manually compiled before being tested.

Won't the first option be a lot slower .
0 Sheldon Juncker · February 6, 2015
Yes, you are correct. But also, C++ cannot do anything that Assembly can't. This is the same that Typescript and Coffeescript are doing.

So basically, we are writing a compilier that will take our language and compile it to JS code. But then we are basically limited to the limitations of JS right. All we can do is make a new syntax.Please correct me if I am wrong.
