I’ll second that. JavaScript is truly a crap language. I prefer to use ANY other language. For front-end development, you have Elm and Dart and ClojureScript and Haxe and Scala.js. My personal favourite is Amber Smalltalk. I’d rather avoid the unholy mess of JS frameworks out there (Angular 1, Angular 2, React, Ember, Meteor, Backbone, Knockout, Aurelia, Mercury, Mithril, Vue, etc., etc., etc.). Good F*cking Grief!!!
