JSX is a statically-typed, object-oriented programming language designed to run on modern web browsers. Being developed at DeNA as a research project, the language has following characteristics: Faster - JSX performs optimization while compiling the source code to JavaScript. The generated code runs faster than an equivalent code written directly in JavaScript. The gain may vary, but even the optimized JavaScript libraries like Box2D becomes faster when ported to JSX (we are observing 4% to 27% increase in performance). Safer - In contrast to JavaScript, JSX is statically-typed and mostly type-safe. The quality of applications becomes higher when being developed using JSX, since many errors will be caught during the compilation process. It also offers debugging features at the compiler level as well. Easier - JSX offers a solid class system much like the Java programming language, freeing the developers from working with the too-primitive prototype-based inheritance system provided by JavaScript. Expressions and Statements are mostly equal to JavaScript, so it is easy to for JavaScript programmers to start using JSX.
