If you already know C++ then you might want to bypass learning a web language and use something like Emscripen (https://github.com/kripken/emscripten‎).

It is basically a C++ to Javascript compiler. It works quite differently to things like coffeescript and typescript but the outcome is even better. You put in typical C++ code including smart pointers, STL etc... and it generates either a .js file or a .html file complete with a console, webgl rendering context or canvas component as output. Can't get simpler than that ;)

 

Quite a few companies are using this now, it is also getting popular in porting well known game engines to the web such as Epic's Unreal engine and Unity's web player engine.

I use it at work and for my personal projects and it is pretty awesome since it provides development libraries for things like SDL, glut, GL out of the box.
