Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning Lua yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Flattening ASTs (and Other Compiler Data Structures)
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jul 2023
We later switched to a ast->bytecode compilation step but for a while the implicit AST was directly traversed during interpretation.
Microvium Is Small

Nice! A few years ago I took a stab at this problem space with https://github.com/cesanta/v7 ; with fun tricks like in-place compacting GC, stdlib JS object graph "frozen" in rom etc

Languages are not all equal nor do they all function in the same way, and that's not my opinion.
the power of Cython or the Python C FFI is that it allows you to script/glue modular native code.
You then state "C++14 may have been ratified 7 years ago but it's not the target code your build chain spits out"
no, a C++ COMPILER spits out assembler code that then gets assembled and linked into an executable.
The C++ or C code corresponds directly to a given set of assembler instructions which correspond directly to CPU instructions.
You claim that Python programming of microcontrollers is mainstream, but this is not true nor possible. Python SCRIPTING of code modules (that cannot be written in Python) is certainly one way to assemble a system from pre-built legos.
If you refer to knowing what I'm talking about as gatekeeping and egoism, might I suggest that you insist less forcefully in the correctness of incorrect things you state? we could be done with this spat in short order if YOU would refrain from speaking falsehoods. lies.untrue things.
I look forward to your lisp c compiler. make sure that it's 100% lisp from the bottom up, or I'll consider you're having ceded my point. Consider that the lisp you author in has a garbage collection system that lisp cannot have written originally, nor has any semantics for the underlying memory structures of, but hey, I guess if one is committed to pretending that all languages are equal for all tasks, who am I to question ones self-identification with a given language.
What are some alternatives?
ChaiScript - Embedded Scripting Language Designed for C++
Wren - The Wren Programming Language. Wren is a small, fast, class-based concurrent scripting language.
V8 - The official mirror of the V8 Git repository
sol2 - Sol3 (sol2 v3.0) - a C++ <-> Lua API wrapper with advanced features and top notch performance - is here, and it's great! Documentation:
luacxx - C++11 API for creating Lua bindings
Cython - The most widely used Python to C compiler
JavaCPP - The missing bridge between Java and native C++
libffi - A portable foreign-function interface library.
