We have C# and we have more functional language - F# in .Net.

Why not to have functional version of Typescript?  We already have in TypeScript type Inference and "F# looking" type declarations. So just remove curly brackets, introduce indentation instead and other functional features like pipe operator |> . 

If it is too extreme, maybe just adding some functional capabilities also would be enough.

Sorry for offtopic.

sounds like a great idea for a completely new project. may I suggest "fscript" for a name.

Functional languages has nothing to with curly braces or significant WS. that is just syntax..

Are you looking for a version of TypeScript with more functional features, or with a different syntax?

If you want sigificant WS, coffiescript is that way --> ;)
