Discover how to focus on operators for Reactive Programming and how they are essential to react to data in your application.  Brought to you in partnership with Wakanda

Little Smallscript is a dialect of Smalltalk that compiles into JavaScript. Hidden behind the huge Smalltalk Environment, Smalltalk always had a beautiful syntax that is fit for object oriented scripting. Little Smallscript is an attempt to let Smalltalk see the light of day again. 

The golden rule of LittleSmallscript is: "It's just JavaScript". The code compiles one-to-one into the equivalent JS, and there is no interpretation at runtime.  You can use any existing JavaScript library seamlessly from LittleSmallscript (and vice-versa).  The compiled output is readable and pretty-printed, passes through JSHint without warnings, will work in every JavaScript runtime, and tends to run as fast or faster than the equivalent handwritten JavaScript.
