  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.

  • haxe

    Haxe - The Cross-Platform Toolkit

    Then there is Haxe that is a higher level language that directly transpiles to C++. But I wouldn't really say the syntax is simpler than for C++

  • Cython

    The most widely used Python to C compiler

    Well you can use Cython transpile certain Python to C code, albeit it still needs the Python runtime and a lot of other stuff, so it isn't really a direct conversion.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
