I personally dislike the syntax of Elm, TypeScript is my preference.
I don't think HTML or CSS is going away, any time soon.
I agree with everything you said, and I really feel JS creators are really doing too much hard work to ignore all these thoughts of JS devs :(
It's like every developer is begging for the native support of JS typing !
Yeah, you're right... actually, we wrote an app in Vue, and we never needed to transpile for most of our users.
Until we knew Safari isn't supporting ES6 (all iphone, OSX, and iPad users complained) so we added babel then.
This gave me very positive impression of how JS is getting adopted faster than any other langs.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
