  • which forth do you guys use for normal day to day scripting and programming

    I am the developer of zeptoforth, which is the main Forth I am using at the present. It supports the RP2040 (particularly the Raspberry Pi Pico, but it should work on other RP2040 boards), which I have been working with lately, and the STM32F407, STM32L476, and STM32F746 DISCOVERY boards. Note that it is not a desktop Forth; for that I would probably just recommend gforth.
  • zeptoforth 0.21.0 is out, now with RP2040 support!
    reddit.com/r/Forth | 2021-10-10
    zeptoforth 0.21.0 (https://github.com/tabemann/zeptoforth/releases/tag/v0.21.0) is now out, and introduces support for the RP2040 microcontroller (e.g. Raspberry Pi Pico, any RP2040 board with Winbond Quad SPI flash should work). Note that it comes in UF2 format, so one codes not need to solder pins for SWD onto one's Raspberry Pi Pico format to load it, and also the Makefile automatically generates UF2 files. Furthermore, when said UF2 file is first loaded, it erases flash above it up to the 1 MB mark, so one does not need to use OpenOCD (with SWD) or a special eraser UF2 file to clear old code out of flash.
  • Why Forth?
    reddit.com/r/Forth | 2021-03-24
    The result of this is zeptoforth, which I have been developing for about a year and four months. One could say that it fits the same niche as Mecrisp-Stellaris, and it admittedly supports far fewer MCU's at the present. I could have just used that rather than bothered to implement my own Cortex-M Forth, but I wanted to create my own Forth environment which I could play with as I saw fit (e.g. adding preemptive multitasking and other multitasking supports such as locks and channels).
