Kotlin is also an alternative to JS. It can be compiled to JavaScript, but also to many other platforms (JVM, Android, IOS, Windows, WASM).

Hi Qasim, welcome!

There are alternatives to JS.

Elm, Reason ML with BuckleScript and TypeScript are the ones I keep hearing about but I have zero experience with either of them.

They all compile your code to JavaScript since that's the language the browsers understand.

I think you can easily build a PWA (progressive web app) with them that can be used by mobile.

If you're after a native app with one of those languages... you might probably be able to use them with React Native or something like that.
