  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    20 milliseconds? On my 7 year old Linux box, this little Nim program runs to completion in 275 microseconds when fully statically linked with musl libc on Linux. That's with a stripped environment (with `env -i`). It takes more like 318 microseconds with my usual 54 environment variables. The program only does about 17 system calls, though.

    Additionally, makes decent CLI tools a real breeze. If you like some of Go's qualities but the language seems too limited, you might like Nim: I generally find getting good performance much less of a challenge with Nim, but Nim is undeniably less well known with a smaller ecosystem and less corporate backing.

  • polymorph

    A fast and frugal entity-component-system library with a focus on code generation and compile time optimisation.

    For a simpler example, check out the particle demo here. This is really only two systems - one for movement and one for calculating force as distance from the mouse (the 3rd system is just for colouring). The rest of the code is creating textures and other setup. For something even simpler, have a look at this simple physics example.
