Firescript is written in Node.js and partially in Firescript. It already has a syntax highlighter and linter integration for Atom IDE.

import Banana from './banana' const banana = new Banana() print(banana.getName())

You'll find a
.firerc.json file within your project folder. This file contains build and feature configuration.
.fire as file extension. The
build command transpiles all
.fire files found in the source folder and writes the output to the destination folder. All other files are being ignored during the build process.
