LightScript

A close superset of ES7 with JSX and Flow, built with Babel. Designed to make programmers a little more productive.

See lightscript.org for example code and language reference documentation. A quick taste:

Item({ item, isActive }) =>
  className = if isActive: 'active' else: 'inactive'

  <li className={className}>
    {item}
  </li>

Come hang out in the gitter chatroom, where contributors can help you get started and answer any questions.

  • (Optional) Significant Indentation
