    Would you prefer to write addons in JavaScript?

    If you had a choice to write WoW addons in JavaScript would you? If not, maybe another language?

    Also here's a strawpoll which includes other sources.

    As a guy who grew up on Java, learned Perl for my Computational Biology profession, picked up C# on the side since it is so useful and was easy to drift over to from Java... I will have to say... LET ME WRITE ADDONS IN PYTHON!!!

    Haha, there is just something so simple about Python now, and as a scripting language it is perfect. I am saying this as a guy unfamiliar with javascript though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. I can understand why people would prefer javascript over Lua though, knowing its uses.

    I would hate to write addons in javascript, I much prefer Lua over it. Python or Ruby would be fun to write in but I have a special place in my heart for Lua and it makes the most sense as the language to write the ui in.

    As I'm very good with javascript, I'd go with that, though I've made a few, and I've only tried LUA. Weird, I know.
