Some differences are
- The keyword ‘Var’ has a function scope. Anywhere in the function, the variable specified using var is accessible but in ‘let’ the scope of a variable declared with the ‘let’ keyword is limited to the block in which it is declared. Let’s start with a Block Scope.
- In ECMAScript 2015, let and const are hoisted but not initialized. Referencing the variable in the block before the variable declaration results in a ReferenceError because the variable is in a “temporal dead zone” from the start of the block until the declaration is processed.
