  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • janet

    A dynamic language and bytecode vm

    Calvin rose, the author of fennel is a really great programmer and an even better language designer. Personally, i dont use or like lua, but I'm a big fan of one of his other projects, janet[0]

  • matrix.to

    A simple stateless privacy-protecting URL redirecting service for Matrix

    If you're interested in discussing further, there is a growing community that hangs out on #fennel on the Libera Chat IRC server. You can connect via matrix chat using https://matrix.to/#/!rnpLWzzTijEUDhhtjW:matrix.org

  • 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.

  • dotfiles

    Config files and miscellany (by jonpalmisc)

    It’s pretty minimal right now as I’m in the process of porting over a larger config. Here’s what I have, although you might find it might be a bit underwhelming:


  • Fennel

    Lua Lisp Language

  • neovim

    Vim-fork focused on extensibility and usability

    I consider Lua 5.1/5.3/5.4 to be roughly their own language. Somewhat akin to a Python2 vs Python3. Completely manageable transition if you want, but best to stick to an implementation if you can. Within a platform, there are seemingly only ever bug fixes.

    NeoVim[0] had a few words on this topic.

  • conjure

    Interactive evaluation for Neovim (Clojure, Fennel, Janet, Racket, Hy, MIT Scheme, Guile)

    Not anymore! If you use Neovim, you can use Conjure: https://conjure.fun/
