What is difference between CoffeeScript and ES6 ?
We will learn about the differences by looking at some examples:
Example 1: If you want to print anything to the console, we only need to use console.log and pass the value that is needed to be printed. Parenthesis is not required when passing the value.
Example 2: This example shows a function that calculates the square of numbers using CoffeeScript.
Example 1: Unlike the CoffeeScript example, if one wants to print anything to the console, we need to use console.log and pass the value in parenthesis.
Square: 4 Square Lambda: 25
Differences between CoffeeScript and ES6:
|We need to install CoffeeScript for the compilation to work.||We do not need to install anything except NodeJS or we can use our browser.|
|It is best to use it when we want to write a shorter syntax.||It is best to use when we want more readable and beginner-friendly code.|
|We do not need to use symbols like semicolons, parenthesis, curly braces||It is necessary to use parenthesis and curly braces if your code exceeds more than a single line.|
