What is CoffeeScript?

CoffeeScript is a wrapper written over JavaScript. CoffeeScript code is transcompiled directly into JavaScript code which leverage the ubiquity of the web browser, which is the widely used execution environment for JavaScript.

Now the question arises simply: Why write a language that’s simply a copy of another language?
  •  The primary purpose of CoffeeScript is to provide a simpler version of JavaScript. 
  • CoffeeScript aims to highlight and retain the fantastically powerful parts of JavaScript while and repairing its rough spots. 
  • It aims to be more expressive.
