  • CoffeScript changes one fundamental aspect

    Significant white spaces. Unfortunately I really hate that. Groovy does not add significant whitespace to Java so I don't really think it represents a good comparison for CoffeScript. Its too bad because CoffeScript really would be a better way to write JavaScript.
