Welcome ES6 ! JavaScript Is Not Fancy Anymore

21/10/2014 UPDATE: This post was updated ( see the new examples for arrow functions and template strings ).

Thanks for the comments and the Reddit discussion.

For years, JavaScript was considered as a toy language. It was used for creating interactive web pages and could run only in the browser. But, things changed; JavaScript is used in both, the server and the browser these days. The simplicity of the language made it so popular that developers started using it for large and complex projects.

However, new developers felt JavaScript was fancy at times. This was because of some of the known drawbacks in the language itself — and the workarounds put in place for fixing them. For example, a developer from a “C” language background is more familiar to block level scoping, but will have difficulties understanding function scoping in JavaScript. Along with lexical scoping, variable hoisting and closures might seem fancy or difficult to understand as well.
