expect-lite is an quick and easy command line automation tool. Written in expect, it is designed to directly map an interactive terminal session into an automation script. expect-lite scripts use special character(s) at the beginning of each line to indicate the action. Basic expect-lite scripts can be created by simply cutting and pasting text from a terminal window into a script, and adding '>' '<' characters. No knowledge of expect is required. Expect-lite is targeted at the verification testing environment, and will produce a Pass/Fail result at the end of the script. However, its use is not limited to this environment. It includes a powerful debugger with breakpoints, step/skip, and the ability to copy/paste expect-lite lines right into a running script.
MiniD is a scripting language influenced by Lua, D, Io, Python, and other languages. It has a C-style syntax, is dynamically typed, and is designed to be easily embedded within and extended by a larger host application. It is written in (and is designed to be used from) the D programming language. It can also be used as a standalone language. Some external libraries are currently under development, including bindings to SDL, OpenGL, and libpcre.
Gastona is an approach for rapid and easy development in less than 1 MB, including sqlite and the complete documentation with samples. It is useful for developing tools and many other applications. The GUI is built through configuration using intuitive layout managers and the communication with widget and the logic using a text generator concept. Emphasis has been put on featured widgets (assisted table and tree) and in high-level commands (scanning files and a text parser for records).
Inq is a scripting language for client/server systems. The server provides transaction, persistence, concurrency, and events support. The client is presently desktop only, though Web clients are planned. Inq uses a generic node structure throughout and reification techniques to obviate boilerplate code, especially in the areas of persistence and MVC.
Nerd is an attempt to create a cross-platform scripting language that is based on Scheme and easy to embed, extend, and use. It's currently used in video game projects and is interpreted only. There are definite future plans to add a byte-code compiler and VM to it and to write proper documentation.
