Scripting language is the language used to write a script for web development, where it is used widely to make dynamic web applications. It is a language that is basically written for a run-time environment and does not require the compilation step. They are rather interpreted. Scripting Language is a programming language that has been developed for integrating and communicating with other programming languages.
Following are some of the frequently used scripting language
Learning to code in scripting languages is quick and not much knowledge of web technology is required by the user.
It is highly systematic with a very less number of data structures and variables to use.
It is of great help in including visualization interfaces and mergers in web pages. Modern web pages call for the use of scripting languages. To create enhanced web pages, captivate visual description which comprises background and foreground colors, and much more.
Different scripting languages have different libraries which they are a part of. They help in making new applications in web browsers and vary from normal programming languages.
Scripting languages can be divided into two categories:
1. Server-side scripting languages are the scripts that work on the server (backend) and hence reduce the workload of a browser. In these scripting languages, the functionality of your website is written. Perl, Ruby, Python, PHP are some of the most commonly used server-side scripting languages.
A programming language that is made particularly to write and manage programs and code, which connects together different software components is known as Glue language.
Graphical user interface scripting languages interact with graphic windows, menus, buttons, and so on just like a human user would on the website. They do this by imitating the actions of the user. These languages are generally used to automate user actions. GUI Scripting is also called "macros" when the task is done with the help of simulated key presses or mouse clicks/tapping or pressing on a touch-enabled screen.
Application based Languages are designed especially for a particular application. For example - A computer game system uses an application-based scripting language to specifically express the programmed actions of player’s characters and the game environment.
An extension language is a continuation to the application-based language allowing users more control and more functionality which is available with the help of a user interface that is very structured.
