  • Fennel

    Lua Lisp Language

    For those interested in learning fennel check out The site has a built in repl powered by fengari.

  • helium

    I wonder if something like helium that handles click detection but not rendering would still seem like overkill. Definitely beyond your bare metal goals, but might be simpler than trying to customize styling in a UI framework.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • LunarML

    The Standard ML compiler that produces Lua/JavaScript

    While talking about this I discovered LunarML, which compiles StandardML to Lua and JS. I'm more familiar with OCaml than SML, but that's definitely one I'm going to keep an eye on.
