    Falcon Player

    Happily! I will share what I use - please be aware there are lots of options in the space. Also, including my wife's advice from last year: Start small - one or two props can be make a great show and can be accomplished in a reasonable time frame.

    Xlights: Sequencing and Scheduling software. This is what tells your lights what to do. (https://xlights.org/)

    Falcon Pi Player (FPP): This software runs on your controller - A raspberry Pi or a Beaglebone are quite popular. This is what you run your sequences on. In my case, I drive my lights directly from my Pi. (https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp and https://falconchristmas.com)

    I found this thread quite interesting on that topic:


  • 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.

  • grain

    The Grain compiler toolchain and CLI. Home of the modern web staple. 🌾

    As an OCaml fan, I’m pretty into what grain has been up to: https://grain-lang.org. Mem management ref: https://github.com/grain-lang/grain/pull/768/files

  • wasp

    🐝 Wasp : Wasm programming language (by pannous)

    I am currently experimenting with my own language wasp/angle:


    As you pointed out true GC is currently postponed, so no long running processes yet. The hope is to get the language finalized just in time when all wasm 2 features become standardized
