Scala in the browser :

I gave a try to this scala to javascript compiler last night, and was quite amazed by the level of maturity this has already reached !

While probably never a replacement for mainline javascript in web sites, I see this as a competitor to coffeescript for web applications.

Full demo of scala-js-fiddle so you can experiment with scala directly in your browser, with some IDE-like features.

This implementation of Langton’s ant is what I achieved from scratch in 20 min.
