Civet is described as a kind of modern CoffeeScript for TypeScript, which may not sound promising if you remember CoffeeScript as I do. Before you write it off, though, consider what Civet has to offer. This is a compact, modern language that aims to give you everything you like about TypeScript with more power and simplicity, including early access to proposed ECMAScript language features. You could be surprised by some of the capabilities Civet puts into your hands with very little effort. 

Since Civet is often compared to CoffeeScript, it's helpful to start by considering what they have in common, as well as where they differ.
