Fay is a programming language which is a proper subset of the Haskell programming language.  The latter language is a general, standardized functional language, with non-strict semantics and strong typing.

What Fay does is that it makes available to you a proper syntactic and semantic version of Haskell which has features like: static typing, fundamental data types, trivial foreign function interface, and more.

The programs you write in Fay compiles down to JavaScript which the code produced being optimized for minifying. There is also a Fay IDE (written in Haskell) which you can use to write and run your Fay programs by providing you with a nice environment.
