  • picobit

    A Compact Scheme System for Microcontrollers

  • moddable

    Tools for developers to create truly open IoT products using standard JavaScript on low cost microcontrollers.

    There's JavaScript/ECMAScript via Moddable's XS engine: https://github.com/Moddable-OpenSource/moddable

    "A typical microcontroller used with the Moddable SDK has about 45 KB of free memory, 1 MB of Flash ROM, and runs at 80 MHz. The Moddable SDK uses many different techniques, both at build time and at run time, to work efficiently on these devices."
