  • val

    The val compiler

  • jakt

    The Jakt Programming Language

    Looks theoretically interesting, let's see if they can deliver in practice. Of all the Rust alternatives this and Jakt are among the most promising IMHO. However, Jakt is more of a community driven project and is actually somewhat usable today.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • arete

    Arete is an experimental programming language.

    Interesting that you ask about the dynamic system. One of our contributors has been building a gradually-typed version of our object model. I can't speak to how that question plays out in arete, but maybe I can get him to comment here.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
