I want to be able to edit existing JS files using pythonic whitespace like CoffeeScript, but output JS that matches the original coding conventions and is indistinguishable from hand-written code. I'd like to be able to convert Javascript to the other syntax for editing, then back to Javascript when saved. This would allow seamless use of this tool while making the code accessible to the entire vanilla JS community. I envision this integrated into editors like Sublime Text. Alternatively it could be a grunt task. A challenge will be editing a js file while preserving existing coding conventions and unedited portions as-is. I also have no experience with compilers, parsers, etc although I have an interest.
