Top 6 OCaml Compiler Projects

  • GitHub repo rescript-compiler

    The compiler for ReScript.

    Project mention: Which Language? | reddit.com/r/functionalprogramming | 2021-10-23

    If OCaml piques your interest, and if you have any interest in front-end web development I also recommend you check out ReScript (formerly ReasonML). ReScript is essentially "Functional JavaScript", similar to Elm. It’s built on top of the OCaml compiler and is similar in syntax and semantics (ReasonML started out as an alternative syntax for OCaml but ReScript seems to be trying to cut that association). I’m building a complex project in ReScript right now and really enjoying it.

  • GitHub repo ocaml

    The core OCaml system: compilers, runtime system, base libraries

    Project mention: Fr, I'll do it | reddit.com/r/memes | 2021-11-02

    OCaml https://ocaml.org/

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo caramel

    :candy: a functional language for building type-safe, scalable, and maintainable applications

    Project mention: Is there a language like Erlang with a stricter type system? | reddit.com/r/erlang | 2021-09-02

    Take a look at Gleam and Caramel

  • GitHub repo js_of_ocaml

    Compiler from OCaml to Javascript.

    Project mention: Is there a statically typed functional programming language that doesn't take purity so seriously? | reddit.com/r/functionalprogramming | 2021-06-01

    TL;DR: Reason is, and always has been, independent of ReScript (formerly BuckleScript) and is still actively maintained. If you want to use Reason or OCaml to make native code you can. If you want to compile JS from OCaml or Reason you also still can, but you'll want to use either js_of_ocaml or a BuckleScript fork named Melange that was made in response to the BuckleScript/ReScript people's shenanigans. And if you only care about JS-like syntax and JS output, you can use ReScript.

  • GitHub repo vult

    Vult is a transcompiler well suited to write high-performance DSP code

    Project mention: Emulating actual modules | reddit.com/r/vcvrack | 2021-05-13
  • GitHub repo austral

    Systems language with linear types

    Project mention: Common Lisp | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-02

    I like Common Lisp but I no longer use it. I'm pretty much completely burned out on dynamic typing. It feels like building on sand. I want calmer programming, even if it's less powerful. At present I'm building a new language[0] with that goal in mind.
