    Solid advice, worth the read for me just to uncover this gem.

  • awesome

    😎 Awesome lists about all kinds of interesting topics

    Awesome maintains a directory of these if you'd like to find more of them.

  • reloading

    Change Python code while it's running without losing state

  • HumbleUI

    Clojure Desktop UI framework

    If you don't mind being stuck on Windows you could use Visual C# or Visual Basic, they have edit-and-continue too. I've worked with the SuperTux C# level editor in the past. C# was actually pretty nice for GUI stuff.

  • ClojureDart

    A port of Clojure that compiles to Dart

    There is a port of the Clojure language to Dart with Flutter support:

  • gleam

    ⭐️ A friendly language for building type-safe, scalable systems!

  • julia

    The Julia Programming Language

    I'm doing a similar trawl. So far Julia is looking like the language to beat.

  • ncc

    Compile a Node.js project into a single file. Supports TypeScript, binary addons, dynamic requires.

    You could use ncc to compile a binary:
