Is this project still active?  It looks like there hasn't been a commit in 2 years.

Not trying to single out this project; more of a general question here.  

Do we really need all of these JavaScript transpilers?  TypeScript, CoffeeScript, Opal, Dart, Pyjamas, the list is a mile long. This isn't even the first Haskell to JavaScript transpiler; there are at least 8 others out there.

For a list of known transpilers you can see here.

Rather than all of this transpiler fragmentation I think the community would be better served if we embraced using JavaScript to it's full extent and helping people to learn how it really works.

Did you crawl for these results? Also; how did you determine who made the top 50 and who got cut off for the tie breakers with 4 comments?  Curious since that's how many comments I had ;)

I agree with the existing answers.  I also think this is the classic chicken/egg problem as well.  I don't comment, because no one comments...

Great site, visit on a regular basis. Are you paying for hosting out of your own pocket, found a generous company to pay for the hosting, or have you been able to somehow monetize this in some way that I'm totally missing?

This read like a fluff piece just to get some attention for book sales. Another basic "Hello World" app tutorial.
