MoonScript is a dynamic scripting language that compiles into Lua. It gives you the power of the fastest scripting language combined with a rich set of features.

class Thing
  name: "unknown"

class Person extends Thing
  say_name: => print "Hello, I am", @name

with Person!
  .name = "Moonscript"

MoonScript can either be compiled into Lua and run at a later time, or it can be dynamically compiled and run using the moonloader. It’s as simple as require "moonscript" in order to have Lua understand how to load and run any MoonScript file.

Because it compiles right into Lua code, it is completely compatible with alternative Lua implementations like LuaJIT, and it is also compatible with all existing Lua code and libraries.

The command line tools also let you run MoonScript directly from the command line, like any first-class scripting language.
