    I also can nominate HNix: https://github.com/haskell-nix/hnix. Nix is a lazy pure language, HNix is an implementation of Nix in lazy pure language (Haskell). The project was done by a famous expert in the field of compilers/interpreters, which worked on Borland C++ compiler back in a day. The project overall was done by a pretty start team.
