javascripty-ness or python-like idioms for javascript

# kai zhu (8 months ago)

coming from a python background, it would be nice if javascript had some core design-philosophy to guide its evolution rather than haphazardly following fads and cues from other languages. currently, my strawman idea of what constitutes javascripty-ness is:

"achieving your ux-workflow objective, such that passing end-to-end data between [client/server/storage] nodes and components requires the fewest and least-complicated transformation-steps possible."

for example, i wouldn't consider the temporal-proposal very javascripty, since it uses excessive [class] transformations to baton-pass datetime between nodes, compared to say ... using static-functions that input/output mostly canonical-isostrings.
