Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Scripting language bindings (via swig) python, perl, tcl
Scripting language biddings are available via swig, supposedly any swig target could be used If you are okay with building, and probably maintaining, the project for your own needs then you may be able to build bindings for your favorite scripting platform.
As noted in a slant "con", there are no binary releases, including no prebuilt bindings.

Babylon provides a playground where you can explore examples and play with the code.
The official documentation offers a wide variety of well-written tutorials on topics from beginner to advanced.
Additionally, there are many tutorials written by the community available that you can find by doing a google search.
Pro Great base shader material
Pro Actively developed
Babylon has great project health, with activity on Github daily for bug fixes and new features.
Con No binary releases.
Expect to compile this from source if your want to play with it.
Ubuntu has a package for it, but that package appears to be missing it's scripting language bindings. I expect the build is also quite old and i fear may be dropped in coming Ubuntu releases.
Con Young project
Babylon is quite young compared to many of it's competitors (released in 2013). The community is still somewhat small, however growing quickly.
