  • forthkit

    I didn't really understand forth till I tried implementing eforth in c.

    https://github.com/tehologist/forthkit

    Managed to write a compiler/interpreter that could understand enough forth to implement the entire system. Less than 500 lines and only uses stdio.h and compiles using TCC

    https://bellard.org/tcc/

    That was so much fun I built a second one in under 300 lines of javascript for experimenting with canvas api in web browser. Single file doesn't require a server, you can drag and drop code onto text window.

    https://github.com/tehologist/ecma6-forth

    Runs standalone, I want to get back to it again.

  • ecma6-forth

    Low level forth like language for writing canvas applications

  • factor

    Factor programming language

    Is there any "battery-included" ANS Forth (more or less like Python/Go) which provides access to concurrency, networking, database, GUI, etc?

    Not an embedded device programmer, but mostly deals with frontend apps, and occasionally backend, so those are very relevant to me.

    Or perhaps use "non-traditional" Forths like 8th (https://8th-dev.com) or Factor (https://factorcode.org)?
