Let’s explore a bit more about the history of CoffeeScript and why it was such a big deal a few years ago.
Why Did CoffeeScript Exist?
Is CoffeeScript Dead?
The important thing to remember is that it is almost impossible for any technology to take over an old one if it doesn’t have major improvements over the past technology.
Should I Learn CoffeeScript?
No, it definitely isn’t worth your time to learn CoffeeScript in 2023. For the same reason it is not worth it to learn PureScript or ElmScript. It just isn’t popular enough to be useful in the vast majority of job settings and it very likely never will be.
CoffeeScript also stopped being maintained back in 2018, five whole years ago! If the developers of CoffeeScript no longer believe in the language, it means you shouldn’t either.
So that’s about it! Everything you need to know about CoffeeScript.
As always, happy coding!
