The triple script dialect superficially resembles JS. In fact, the dialect is specifically crafted so that the output of the trplkt compiler passes as syntactically valid (even if not semantically coherent) by any compliant ECMA-262 parser.

But let it be a mantra for the work of the triplescripts.org group: This is not JavaScript.

Although superficially resembling JS for the reasons described, the triple script dialect is most strongly inspired by the pragmatics of Go while attempting to retain the gestalt of Smalltalk where possible.
