Our great sponsors
  • Zigi - Workflow assistant built for devs & their teams
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • 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/).

  • 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

    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

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • LuaJIT

    Mirror of the LuaJIT git repository
