JSWat []()!+

JSWat is an esoteric and educational programming style based on the atomic parts of JavaScript. It uses only six different characters to write and execute code.

Here is a quick lightning talk about it: https://youtu.be/sHwd2IeqYDc

This is not my original work. The original author, Martin Kleppe created this project with a name different from this. That name is not appropriate for user groupes, conferences, or professional spaces, so I am re-creating this with a different name. All credit goes to Martin Keppe. The name, JSWat, is a reference to Gary Bernhardt's epic CodeMash presentation.

It does not depend on a browser, so you can even run it on Node.js.

undefined   =>  [][[]]
NaN         =>  +[![]]
0           =>  +[]
1           =>  +!+[]
2           =>  !+[]+!+[]
10          =>  [+!+[]]+[+[]]
Array       =>  []
Number      =>  +[]
String      =>  []+[]
Boolean     =>  ![]
Function    =>  []["filter"]
run         =>  []["filter"]["constructor"]( CODE )()
eval        =>  []["filter"]["constructor"]("return eval")()( CODE )
window      =>  []["filter"]["constructor"]("return this")()
