Lua - Embeddable Scripting Language.

  •        1134

Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. Lua combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting bytecode for a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.

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.

mypy - New Python Variant


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.

Stackless Python - Enhanced version of the Python


Stackless Python is an enhanced version of the Python programming language. It allows programmers to reap the benefits of thread-based programming without the performance and complexity problems associated with conventional threads. The most prominent feature of Stackless is microthreads, which avoid much of the overhead associated with usual operating system threads.

PyPy - fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language


PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language. It supports most of the commonly used Python standard library modules. Its feature include Just-in-Time compiler, Less memory usage, support Stackless and lot more. PyPy focuses on speed, efficiency and 100% compatibility with the original CPython interpreter. It was conceived as an implementation of Python written in Python, which enables Python developers to hack the implementation.

luna - luna programming language - a small, elegant VM implemented in C


Luna is an expressive, minimalistic, elegant programming language implemented in C. With cooperative thread concurrency at its core, async I/O, and influences derived from languages such as Lua, io, Rust, Ruby, and C. Luna favours unification and minimalism over minor obscure conveniences, providing the true convenience of a simple effective language. This includes omitting features which facilitate magic such as getters/setters, method_missing-style delegation etc. This project is very much a work in progress, as I explore the wonderful world of VMs! feel free to join.Note: Luna doesn't run any code yet, it only parses the code and builds an AST. There are still some decisions to be made about certain aspects of the language. If you would like to join and finish designing Luna with the community, check out the issue tracker and share your thoughts.
