Top 8 C Scripting Projects

  • GitHub repo Wren

    The Wren Programming Language. Wren is a small, fast, class-based concurrent scripting language.

    Project mention: What's a good open source project for learning about programming languages? | reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages | 2021-11-23

    And as a follow-up to this, the wonderful Wren, which has some neat extensions to the work done in Crafting Interpreters.

  • GitHub repo wasm3

    🚀 The fastest WebAssembly interpreter, and the most universal runtime

    Project mention: Does it make sense to write an interpreter in a non-GC programming language (like Rust or C)? | reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages | 2021-08-11

    I wondered if some interpreter for non garbage collected languages existed. I found one for Web assembly https://github.com/wasm3/wasm3 (written in C) There are apparently several C interpreters too.

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo Weechat

    The extensible chat client.

    Project mention: Docker based IRC client ... does it exist? | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-10-16

    if you're old school IRC person, and remember the good ol times with bitchx & irssi, https://weechat.org/ is a good modernized & actively maintained option, not a browser based option but..

  • GitHub repo libffi

    A portable foreign-function interface library.

    Project mention: buildozer -v android debug error | reddit.com/r/kivy | 2021-11-02

    [INFO]: -> running basename https://github.com/libffi/libffi/archive/v3.3.tar.gz

  • GitHub repo ctypes.sh

    A foreign function interface for bash.

  • GitHub repo V7

    Embedded JavaScript engine for C/C++

    Languages are not all equal nor do they all function in the same way, and that's not my opinion.

    Javascript syntax itself is one thing, and you can certainly feel free to Javascriptify some C++ libraries and make it all look a certain way for specific tasks, while managing things behind the scenes, up to a point... but there is no getting around the fact that SOMEONE and some languages are needed to implement low level systems functionality.

    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.

  • GitHub repo myMPD

    myMPD is a standalone and mobile friendly web mpd client with a tiny footprint and advanced features.

    Project mention: Whole Home Audio Hardware Help | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-05-10

    The central server runs the SnapCast server that sends the audio streams to the clients and SnapWeb to control volume. The audio itself is controlled by MPD with MyMPD as a web frontend.

  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo hermes

    C-like scripting language (by sebbekarlsson)

    Project mention: Hey there! I'm a 13-year-old coder who just made a language! It would mean a lot if you could check it out and help me improve! Thanks :) | reddit.com/r/programming | 2021-09-12

    I’d really like to give you the benefit of the doubt here, but did you just copy the code from https://github.com/sebbekarlsson/hermes, change a few things (like the readme), rename the language, and say it’s your own? The file structure is exactly the same, and the code appears to be only modified (e.g. in main.c).
