  • gleam

    ⭐️ A friendly language for building type-safe, scalable systems!

    Project mention: Inko Programming Language | | 2023-11-14

    I had been only following this language with some interest, I guess this was born in gitlab not sure if the creator(s) still work there. This is what I'd have wanted golang to be (albeit with GC when you do not have clear lifetimes).

    But how would you differentiate yourself from which can leverage the OTP, I'd be more interested if we can adapt Gleam to graalvm isolates so we can leverage the JVM ecosystem.

  • leo

    🦁 The Leo Programming Language. A Programming Language for Formally Verified, Zero-Knowledge Applications

    Project mention: 2023/4/15 Network Upgrade Changelog !!! | /r/Aleo | 2023-04-16

  • gluon

    A static, type inferred and embeddable language written in Rust.

    Project mention: Gluon is a static, type inferred and embeddabble language written in Rust | | 2023-07-01
  • artichoke

    💎 Artichoke is a Ruby made with Rust

    Project mention: Ruby 3.2.0 Is from Another Dimension | | 2023-01-04

    The java based ruby, removes the GIL, which provides us real multithreading.

    Truffleruby is "A high performance implementation of the Ruby programming language, built on GraalVM." If you prefer there is even a rust based ruby

    again, IMO, the microbenchmark, doesn't matter. What matters is the problem domain, whole stack and the whole "speed", including development, deployment and etc, and for some domains, ruby is the best and fast choice.

  • erg

    A statically typed language that can deeply improve the Python ecosystem

  • rune

    An embeddable dynamic programming language for Rust. (by rune-rs)

    Project mention: Steel – An embedded scheme interpreter in Rust | | 2023-12-03

    A Lisp, a weird dialect of Lisp, is not better than Lua. Why use Rune [0]?!


  • command-line-rust

    Code for Command-Line Rust (O'Reilly, 2022, ISBN 9781098109417)

    Project mention: Best path to learn rust | /r/rust | 2023-07-04

    You absolutely must write programs, preferably using tests to ensure you are creating correct and reproducible code. May I suggest starting with my book, Command-Line Rust (O'Reilly, 2022). All the code/data/tests are in Note that there are branches showing how to use the 4.x version of clap (command-line argument parser) rather than the 2.33 that was current when the book was published.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • tao

    A statically-typed functional language with generics, typeclasses, sum types, pattern-matching, first-class functions, currying, algebraic effects, associated types, good diagnostics, etc. (by zesterer)

    Project mention: What backwards-incompatible changes would you make in a hypothetical Rust 2.0? | /r/rust | 2023-04-19

    If you want some prior work on this, I've implemented effect-objects-as-return-values in my own language Tao, using uniqueness types. There's still work to be done, but I think it's sufficient as a proof of concept that this approach is viable without type soup.

  • passerine

    A small extensible programming language designed for concise expression with little code.

  • kcl

    KCL Language Core. KCL is a constraint-based record & functional language mainly used in configuration and policy scenarios. (CNCF Sandbox Project).

    Project mention: KCL is an open-source constraint-based record and functional language | | 2023-10-28
  • astro

    A fun safe language for rapid prototyping and high performance applications (by astrolang)

    Project mention: What’s an actual use case for Rust | /r/rust | 2023-03-26

    Some people tried using Rust to implement programming languages, right now I do not know any bigger language with compiler written in Rust but there was an attempt with astro. Match statements make parsing in Rust pretty comfortable.

  • csml-engine

    CSML is an easy-to-use chatbot programming language and framework.

  • inko

    A language for building concurrent software with confidence

    Project mention: A language like C, but with a borrow-checker | | 2023-11-18
  • steel

    An embedded scheme interpreter in Rust

    Project mention: Steel – An embeddable and extensible Scheme dialect | /r/programming | 2023-12-05
  • aussieplusplus

    Programming language from down under

    Project mention: Flappy Bird Implemented in TypeScript Types | | 2023-10-20

    Not related to this post, but man his other project is hilarious and ingenious :)

  • wu

    🐉 A practical game and data language

  • numbat

    A statically typed programming language for scientific computations with first class support for physical dimensions and units

    Project mention: Show HN: Numbat – A programming language with physical dimensions as types | | 2023-11-16

    > 365·243 ought to be 365·2425 exactly:

    Yes. This is also how it is defined:

    The calculation above is showing a rounded result (6 significant digits by default).

  • pen

    The parallel, concurrent, and functional programming language for scalable software development (by pen-lang)

  • bril

    an educational compiler intermediate representation
