  • Why Lisp? (2015)

    I haven't tried it, but there is Janet (https://janet-lang.org/) that seems pretty well suited for building small scripts. It was submitted a few times recently here on HN.
  • Janet is a tiny Lisp weighing in at 200-300 kB for embedding and scripting

    I just added experimental support for Janet in PEL. Details in the Janet PDF which is better viewed with a browser, like Firefox, that can render PDF.

    Janet uses tuples instead of lists to store code AFAIK. At some point in time it was considered naming it Tupper, short for TUPle PRocessing instead of lisp processing.

    Back in March, we managed to port it Cosmopolitan Libc so you can build Janet code as an Actually Portable Executable. Here's the diff you need: https://github.com/janet-lang/janet/compare/master...ahgamut... The Janet team helped us identify a lot of things we needed improve with our C library implemention too! While we've ported other languages too, like Python, Lua, etc. those users will still owe much thanks to Janet.

    fyi there's some middle ground via ferret if you want to mix the two in the future. I think janet lang is more full featured, borrowing ideas from clojure while targeting simple embedding alongside c.
