    The Mobile Scripting Language

    I made a Tcl-like thing myself, a while back. For feature phones that could run a minimal JVM.

    Haven't touched it in a long time, though.

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

    Little Interpreted Language (LIL) (by wsxiaoys)

    "JavaScript. I still can't take it seriously and it feels more like a modern IoT hype rather than a serious alternative to Lua."

    Hype is effective on some people. But not everyone.

    "There is also lil, the Little Interpreted Language. ... Too bad the author have removed Git repos and his site looks broken now."

    Here is another experimental small scripting language project probably few HN readers will ever discover. It is from 2006 but still compiles easily.

    It is intended to look like C.
