Ruby - Programming Language

  •        791

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.

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.

Python - Programming Language

Python is a remarkably powerful dynamic programming language that is used in a wide variety of application domains. It is embeddable within applications as a scripting interface. Build flexible data-driven code using Python's powerful and dynamic introspection capabilities and advanced language features such as meta-classes, duck typing and decorators.

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.

Gambas - Object Language and Development Environment built on a BASIC Interpreter

RAD including Basic language, IDE, Toolbox for Controls and runtime for Linux. Similar to Visual Basic but object orientated. Interfaces to SQLite, MySQL and PostgreSQL databases. Allows creation of graphics, networking and CGI web apps. Uses either GTK+ or QT4 icons. Gambas development environment provides Syntax highlighting, GUI form editor, Integrated debugger and lot more.

fancy - Fancy is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language inspired by Smalltalk, Ruby, Io and Erlang that runs on the Rubinius VM

Fancy is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language heavily inspired by Smalltalk, Ruby, Io and Erlang. It supports dynamic code evaluation (as in Ruby & Smalltalk), class-based mixins, (simple) pattern matching, runtime introspection & reflection, "monkey patching" and much more. It runs on Rubinius, the Ruby VM, and thus has first-class integration with Ruby's core library and any additional Ruby libraries that run on Rubinius, including most C-extensions.It supports concurrency via the actor-model, including first-class futures and async message send semantics built into the language, similar to Io.

Python for .NET - Python integration with the .NET

Python for .NET is a package that gives Python programmers nearly seamless integration with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and provides a powerful application scripting tool for .NET developers. Using this package you can script .NET applications or build entire applications in Python, using .NET services and components written in any language that targets the CLR (Managed C++, C#, VB, JScript).

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.

Pharo - Smalltalk inspired language

Pharo is an open source Smalltalk. The goal of Pharo is to produce a clean and lean open-source Smalltalk. Pharo wants to bring Squeak to the next level. It is a pure object-oriented language with low memory footprint.

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.

ruby-gsl is a port of the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) to the Ruby programming language. The GNU Scientific Library is a collection of routines for numerical computing. Ruby is an interpreted scripting language for quick and easy object-oriented programm

PyG-Latin - An object oriented programming language for creating games that use the curses library.

PyG-Latin is an object oriented programming language intended for creating games that use the curses library. The way it works is loosely based on the Enigma Game Maker in that it uses a library to implement custom functions but keeps most of the syntax of the language it's transpiling to (obviously, with a bit of modification). The language itself is based on GML. It is case sensitive, but not tab sensitive.

hprose-java - Hprose is a cross-language RPC. This project is Hprose 2.0 for Java

Hprose is a High Performance Remote Object Service Engine. It is a modern, lightweight, cross-language, cross-platform, object-oriented, high performance, remote dynamic communication middleware. It is not only easy to use, but powerful. You just need a little time to learn, then you can use it to easily construct cross language cross platform distributed application system. Hprose supports many programming languages, for example: * AAuto Quicker * ActionScript * ASP * C++ * Dart * Delphi/Free Pascal * dotNET(C#, Visual Basic...) * Golang * Java * JavaScript * Node.js * Objective-C * Perl * PHP * Python * Ruby * ... Through Hprose, You can conveniently and efficiently intercommunicate between those programming languages. This project is the implementation of Hprose for Java.
