Eta - A powerful language for building scalable systems on the JVM

  •    Haskell

Eta is a pure, lazy, strongly typed functional programming language on the JVM. It is a dialect of Haskell on the JVM. It is pure by default which means that calling a function with the same arguments will yield the same results every time. It is lazy by default which means that data stays in unevaluated state until a function needs to peek inside.

gosu-lang - The Gosu programming language

  •    Gosu

Gosu is a pragmatic programming language for the JVM. It has been designed with Java developers in mind by providing a set of features that allow them to be more productive without sacrificing the benefits of static typing. Gosu is an object oriented language with a sprinkle of functional programming features. It was nominated Language of the Month in a Dr Dobb's article in 2011. You need Java JDK 1.8 and Maven 3.x to build Gosu. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to JDK 1.8's home.

Scala Language - Object-Oriented Meets Functional

  •    Java

Scala is a pure-bred object-oriented language. Conceptually, every value is an object and every operation is a method-call. The language supports advanced component architectures through classes and traits. Even though its syntax is fairly conventional, Scala is also a full-blown functional language. It has everything you would expect, including first-class functions, a library with efficient immutable data structures, and a general preference of immutability over mutation.

Jython - Python for the Java Platform

Jython is an implementation of the Python programming language written in Java. It supports Dynamic compilation to Java bytecodes. It has the ability to extend existing Java classes in Jython. It is an excellent embedded scripting language.

kotlin - Statically Typed Programming Language for the JVM

  •    Java

Kotlin is a statically typed programming language that compiles to JVM byte codes and JavaScript. Java programming language has certain limitations and problems that are either impossible or very hard to fix due to backward-compatibility issues. This new statically typed JVM-targeted language free of the legacy has features include compilation at least as fast as Java, variable type inference, higher-order functions (closures), extension functions, code in interfaces, first-class delegation etc

gravity - Gravity Programming Language

  •    C

Gravity is a powerful, dynamically typed, lightweight, embeddable programming language written in C without any external dependencies (except for stdlib). It is a class-based concurrent scripting language with modern Swift-like syntax. Gravity supports procedural programming, object-oriented programming, functional programming and data-driven programming. Thanks to special built-in methods, it can also be used as a prototype-based programming language.

fo - An experimental language which adds functional programming features to Go.

  •    Go

Fo is an experimental language which adds functional programming features to Go. The name is short for "Functional Go". Go already supports many features that functional programmers might want: closures, first-class functions, errors as values, etc. The main feature (and in fact only feature for now) that Fo adds is type polymorphism via generics. Generics encourage functional programming techniques by making it possible to write flexible higher-order functions and type-agnostic data structures.

mypy - New Python Variant

  •    Python

The mypy programming language is an experimental Python variant that aims to combine the benefits of dynamic (or "duck") typing and static typing. The goal is to have the expressive power and convenience of Python, and also compile-time type checking and efficient compilation to native code, without the need of a heavy-weight VM. Mypy will get rid of the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) that is used in CPython and allow parallel programs to take advantage of multicore processors.
