  • qbe-rs

    QBE IR in natural Rust data structures

  • Before that, I had spent a bit of time working with QBE, which is much simpler and really easy to write a frontend for. I switched to libgccjit though, because I got frustrated with a few of the things lacking from QBE (like the ability to easily keep track of where different variables live on the stack). I think for many hobby language projects, QBE would be a good option (my project was off the ground very fast using QBE, and I got pretty far before I ran into limitations I couldn't easily work around).

  • libfirm

    graph based intermediate representation and backend for optimising compilers

  • An alternative: LibFirm but it's much simpler and feature-poor.

  • wasmtime

    A fast and secure runtime for WebAssembly

  • As far as I know, there is QBE, which is actually kinda underrated, and Cranelift, mainly designed for JIT compilation

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
