Lua is a great programming language that prides itself on ANSI C portability, small size, simplicity, and ease of embedding. Due to these goals, the official Lua distribution cannot provide features common to popular stand-alone scripting languages. The goal of the LuaCheia project is to make a full-featured language based on Lua that makes it more usable as a stand-alone language.
Caffeine is a free high-performance interoperability solution between the Java platform and the .NET framework, with special emphasis on the enterprise variants of such platforms. It makes software originally written for .NET available to the Java platform. It promotes library reuse between Java and .NET by transferring APIs across environments, and allows code written for one platform to run on the other platform with minimal performance degradation. It is powered by Mono, and runs on Alpha, Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, HPPA, SPARC, and s390 systems.
Alore is an object-oriented programming language with a clean syntax that resembles Python and Lua. It is optionally-typed like Google Dart. It is both a dynamic scripting language and a general-purpose language with static typing. It is aimed at most programming tasks, from short scripts to complex applications. It allows programmers to freely mix static and dynamic typing within a program. It has native threads and a very fast edit-test cycle. Programmers can always bypass type checking and run their programs immediately.
