what is the closest language to featurescript?

    It's similar to java/javascript, but it's different enough that it's more than just java with special built-in libraries.

    Syntax-wise, it's most similar to JavaScript.  Other than the C family, we were inspired a little by a lot of different languages, including Lua, D, Python, and languages with purely functional maps and arrays.  The user type system is pretty unique, as far as I know, primarily @mlauer's brainchild.
