Lisp in Javascript

If you’re a Lisp head, like us at Untyped, when you look at Javascript you get an itch to add back all the parentheses (and fix its silly scoping rules, but that’s another post). Unsurprisingly we’re not the only ones. There is this Lisp to JavaScript Compiler I found via LtU, and also ParenScript. These are pretty cool. Of the two ParenScript is more practical, though the translation remains fairly direct. I’d like to see these languages go further and add features not present in Javascript. I think ParenScript gets the scoping rules correct, so next on my list would be coroutines to make coding animations easier.
