Discussion on: What's the difference between Typescript, Babel, and Coffeescript?

I have not used coffeescript much, but it strikes me as mostly javascript with a few nice bits of syntax added to make programming more convenient. I think that some of the things that were introduced in coffeescript were later adopted into javascript in es5/es6. Nowadays, I'm not aware of people using coffeescript much anymore - they'd either use modern javascript (possibly transpiled via babel) or typescript (for the added compile-time type safety).
