This month, JavaScript re-entered the top 10 of the TIOBE index. It is still a bit of a miracle why this ubiquitous language is not yet part of the top 5. JavaScript is the glue of client-side web page programming nowadays. But JavaScript is currently expanding its application domain. Node.js has made JavaScript a server-side programming language and the amount of Javascript based games (mostly browser based) is increasing.

But there are also some threats for JavaScript. The JavaScript language is generally regarded as a programming language in which it is easy to make mistakes. It is interpreted, so most errors show up only at run-time. That’s why Google designed Dart (currently at position 80) as JavaScript’s successor. But also other programming languages were designed to generate JavaScript code instead of writing it manually. Examples of this are CoffeeScript (position 139) and TypeScript (position 207).
