    I also can nominate 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.

    Well, maintaining a rewrite of Nix in Haskell:
  • HNix - Nix in Haskell, about the project & meeting with the creator
    1 project | | 5 Jun 2021
    HNix is a Nix (pure lazy language) interpreter/tooling in Haskell. So it is a field&case of pure-to-pure, lazy-to-lazy language creation. HNix is created with fancy design paradigms (design introduction): as recursion schemes (since Nix is a recursive language) & Abstracting Definitional Interpreters. Mentioning these two particularly, as they align HNix to GHC in a natural way, design leverages & projects GHC power to HNix, allowing to concentrate on language implementation.
