  • kuroko

    Dialect of Python with explicit variable declaration and block scoping, with a lightweight and easy-to-embed bytecode compiler and interpreter.

    Kuroko, it's basically python, but has code block / scope that makes more sense

  • coalton

    Coalton is an efficient, statically typed functional programming language that supercharges Common Lisp.

    My full time job is in Scala, and I still use Common Lisp in some capacity most days. Mostly it's small one-off tasks like pulling a specific field of some JSON, but even that is more ergonomic and enjoyable in an emacs buffer with SLIME than any Scala tool I've seen. I do miss static typing, though, so I'd like to spend more time looking at Coalton.

  • Coconut

    Simple, elegant, Pythonic functional programming.

    F# and also the fun, compile-to-Python, functional language called Coconut.

  • Lua
