  • lambdanative

    LambdaNative is a cross-platform development environment written in Scheme, supporting Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10, OS X, Linux, Windows, OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenWrt.

  • gerbil

    Gerbil Scheme

    Project mention: Ask HN: Why are you programming your hobby projects in a niche language? | | 2022-02-26

    Gerbil looks a lot like what one very prolific and opinionated hacker calls home. There's an incredible amount of work just by 1 author

    Whereas racket looks steered mainly by the academic group working on it, with some attention shifting to the new Rhombus project

    These days everything looks like it's using json/yaml and trying to add logic/constraints to it to make it declarative, either through logic controllers (eg kubernetes operators) or by embedding it in the syntax, eg terraform HCL, declarative UI frameworks.

    Scheme DSLs are a good alternative and could be used to generate code or glue between the components you use.

  • cyclone

    :cyclone: A brand-new compiler that allows practical application development using R7RS Scheme. We provide modern features and a stable system capable of generating fast native binaries.

    Project mention: Which Scheme for compiling C to use in WASM? | | 2023-01-15

    Cyclone Scheme transpiles to C and can run in the browser using WASM.

  • nanopass-framework-scheme

    The new nanopass framework; an embedded DSL for writing compilers in Scheme

    Project mention: Best languages to design a new language in? | | 2022-09-19

    Well, this compiler framework in scheme might be worth looking.

  • IronScheme


    Project mention: Async / Await in Scheme | | 2022-12-24

    I recently pushed a library to IronScheme to implement anyc / await in a way that I felt was reasonable. Before that, IronScheme had pretty limited support for concurrency, so my goal was to create a library that provided concurrency facilities in a way that would interop nicely with .NET libraries.

  • swift-lispkit

    Interpreter framework for Lisp-based extension and scripting languages on macOS and iOS. LispKit is based on the R7RS standard for Scheme. Its compiler generates bytecode for a virtual machine. LispKit is fully implemented in Swift 5.

  • zkeme80

    An assembler and operating system for the TI-84+ written in Scheme, Forth and Z80 assembly.

    Project mention: Jonesforth – A sometimes minimal FORTH compiler and tutorial (2007) | | 2022-05-13

    Some time ago I wrote an implementation of Forth that runs on the TI-84+ and TI-83+ calculators directly inspired by Jonesforth.[0] It runs under TI-OS as well, but the amount of available space is somewhat limited. On another implementation I wrote[1] you have full access to the calculator hardware and memory from Forth.



  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • ol

    Otus Lisp (Ol in short) is a purely* functional dialect of Lisp.

    Project mention: I want to learn LISP | | 2023-01-01
  • lispy

    Learning with Peter Norvig's interpreter (by fluentpython)

  • bibliography

    Bibliography of Scheme research ( and beyond)

    Project mention: Scheme/PL papers | | 2022-02-04
  • staged-miniKanren

    staged relational interpreters: running with holes, faster

  • Schemings

    You dig Scheme. The world is coded in C. You get both.

  • guile-json

    JSON module for Guile

    Project mention: A Scheme Primer | | 2022-07-08
  • schemepunk

    A batteries-included extended standard library for seven R7RS Scheme dialects.

    Project mention: Schemepunk – A kitchen-sink utility library for several R7RS Scheme dialects | | 2023-01-20
  • cant

    A programming argot

    Project mention: Noulith: A new programming language currently used by the Advent of Code leader | | 2022-12-13

    I've done AoC using my own language before. As a task it's at a sweet spot for finding weaknesses in the language/library/implementation: real and varied enough to exercise your system, small chunks of work, lots of code to compare yours to, with fun and competitive juices.

    The first time I did it it forced me to fix some major problems. My language would still be a handicap for me in the state it's in (though I did get on the leaderboard a couple times using it).

    fwiw: (haven't done this year's so far)

  • r6rs-pffi

    Portable Foreign Function Interface (FFI) for R6RS

  • sagittarius-scheme

    A manual (beh...) clone from bitbucket to use hosted CI service which only support GitHub

    Project mention: Oldest Scheme Implementations | | 2022-04-03

    Since you're listing Gerbil which is from 2016, maybe also list Sagittarius, which dates back to at least 2011

  • ypsilon

    R7RS/R6RS Scheme Implementation

    Project mention: Oldest Scheme Implementations | | 2022-04-03

    Oh - it seems that Ypsilon is being actively developed again!

  • aeon

    A live-coding system for musical pattern manipulation (by tommaisey)

    Project mention: Racket for Computer Music? | | 2022-06-13 , (Chez Scheme) ?

  • cookbook

    New Scheme Cookbook (by schemedoc)

    Project mention: "I feel nothing but gratitude..." | | 2023-01-22

    I, for one, like small programming exercises with solution (and esp. egoless discussion) as I'm learning. While reading SICP, I've learned a lot via I'm working through presently. I've greatly enjoyed the little challenges contained in Jon Bentley's Programming Pearls, especially sorting. Of course, one must have discipline to code their own implementation before looking at another's solution.

  • scriptfu

    My Script-Fu scripts for GIMP

  • chez-docs
