'Mocha' was originally intended to be a lesser complex language for the more informal programmers and designers to create and automate interactions on the web browser and also make websites more dynamic.
The name was later changed to 'LiveScript' in September 1995. The 'Script' meant it was a scripting language and not a real programming language compared to Java which was to be the complicated programming language reserved for real programmers to build the more complex big projects.

We'll study these frameworks better as we progress in further articles.
Your being here means you interested on this journey with me and I'm hoping I did some justice in explaining the start. I've gathered much more information researching for this article than when i just read about it😅. I believe this is a good foundation for us as I learn to give out more useful coding information to you guys. I hope you learned something new!
Thanks for reading!❤
All comments, additions, corrections and subtractions are welcome😊.
This week we code!💪
