JRuby - The Ruby Programming Language on the JVM

  •        680

JRuby is an implementation of the Ruby language using the JVM. It aims to be a complete, correct and fast implementation of Ruby, at the same time as providing powerful new features such as concurrency without a global-interpreter-lock, true parallelism, and tight integration to the Java language to allow you to use Java classes in your Ruby program and to allow JRuby to be embedded into a Java application.

kotlin - Statically Typed Programming Language for the JVM


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

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


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.

Groovy - A dynamic language for the Java platform


Groovy is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-typing and static compilation capabilities, for the Java platform aimed at multiplying developers’ productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax. It integrates smoothly with any Java program, and immediately delivers to your application powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-Specific Language authoring, runtime and compile-time meta-programming and functional programming.

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.

Scala Language - Object-Oriented Meets Functional


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.


JPHP - An alternative to Zend PHP, like JRuby and Jython only for PHP


JPHP is a new implementation for PHP which uses the Java VM. It supports many features of the PHP language (7.0+).How does it work? JPHP is a compiler like javac, it compiles php sources to JVM bytecode and then can execute the result on the Java VM. JPHP is not a replacement for the Zend PHP engine or Facebook HHVM.

Go kit - A standard library for microservices.


Go kit is a programming toolkit for building microservices (or elegant monoliths) in Go. We solve common problems in distributed systems and application architecture so you can focus on delivering business value. Go is a great general-purpose language, but microservices require a certain amount of specialized support. RPC safety, system observability, infrastructure integration, even program design — Go kit fills in the gaps left by the standard library, and makes Go a first-class language for writing microservices in any organization.

Caledon - Logic Programming Language


Caledon is a dependently typed, polymorphic, higher order logic programming language. ie, everything you need to have a conversation with your computer. A language/system for conversing with the machine in a manner less one sided and instructional than regular programming. It is good at defining DSLs.

Ruby - Programming Language


A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write. The syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. It was also influenced by Eiffel and Lisp. It is a scripting language that is more powerful than Perl, and more object-oriented than Python.

IronPython - Python programming language for the .NET Framework


IronPython is an open-source implementation of the Python programming language which is tightly integrated with the .NET Framework. IronPython can use the .NET Framework and Python libraries, and other .NET languages can use Python code just as easily. It supports an interactive console with fully dynamic compilation.

CaffeineScript(BETA) - A beautiful, fun language designed to maximize your JavaScript productivity


CaffeineScript is an open-source programming language that compiles to JavaScript. The goal is to minimize total effort, over a product's lifetime, for the entire team. Design thinking is essential for achieving that goal. That means user-experience and graphic design are as important as computer-science and software engineering. A well-designed language makes code more beautiful, programming more fun, and, ultimately, lets us get more done with less effort.

Renjin is a new interpreter for the R Language for Statistical Computing, built on the Java Virtual Machine.The primary goals of the project are to provide a modern interpreter that serves as a drop-in replacement for GNU-R, but is easier to integrate with other systems, offers better performance, and is more extensible.

Zig - System programming language intended to replace C


Zig is a a system programming language intended to replace C. Zig intends to remain a small language, yet powerful enough to write optimal, readable, safe, and concise code to solve any computing problem. Porting a C project to Zig should be a pleasant experience - every C feature needs a corresponding Zig feature which solves the problem equivalently or better.

Cython - C extensions for the Python language


Cython is a language that makes writing C extensions for the Python language as easy as Python itself. It is based on the well-known Pyrex, but supports more cutting edge functionality and optimizations. It gives you the combined power of Python and C to let you write Python code that calls back and forth from and to C or C++ code natively at any point.
