What are the benefits of using ElixirScript over ES6/ES7 and vice versa?


The mainreason for using any $Lang to JavaScript is to have a syntax that you are used to.

Plus it can be quite nice to have code in elixir that runs on both server ‘and’ on the client for interpolation and/or save server round-trips for client-side only stuff (this can be quite useful with drab for example).


One language for all things - personally Elixir is much more better for me. It’s easier using Elixir builtin features rather than looking for framework and thousands of libraries in JavaScript.
