This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • nelua-lang

    Minimal, efficient, statically-typed and meta-programmable systems programming language heavily inspired by Lua, which compiles to C and native code.

    A discussion about GC and memory management can be found here https://github.com/edubart/nelua-lang/discussions/70

    Maybe it can answer to some parts of your reasoning? :/

  • terra

    Terra is a low-level system programming language that is embedded in and meta-programmed by the Lua programming language.

    Seems to have some overlap with Terra (https://terralang.org/).

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • nelua-decl

    C binding generator for Nelua using GCC Lua plugin.

  • mir

    A lightweight JIT compiler based on MIR (Medium Internal Representation) and C11 JIT compiler and interpreter based on MIR

    > I wish C was scriptable

    C kinda can be used as scripting language with MIR project https://github.com/vnmakarov/mir

    It was released just a few days ago, and I've successfully use it as an alternative and fast C compiler with Nelua.

  • ravi

    Ravi is a dialect of Lua, featuring limited optional static typing, JIT and AOT compilers

  • moonjit

    Discontinued Just-In-Time Compiler for the Lua Programming language. Fork of LuaJIT to continue development. This project does not have an active maintainer, see https://twitter.com/siddhesh_p/status/1308594269502885889?s=20 for more detail.

  • moonscript

    :crescent_moon: A language that compiles to Lua

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • LuaJIT

    Mirror of the LuaJIT git repository
