First some benchmarks (warning: one benchmark/language name is NSFW):

Further warning, benchmarks can be as truthful as any other statistics.

1st is Crystal:

  • Ruby-like syntax
  • static type checking (but types don’t need to be declared)
  • compiled performance beats Go in most benchmarks above!

2nd is Red:

  • Inspired by Rebol (which dates back to AmigaOS)
  • functional, imperative, and symbolic programming
  • prototypical inheritance
  • optional types with 50+ built-in data types
  • < 1MB install
  • Consists of high level Red language 95% compatible with Rebol version 2 and Red/System DSL for higher performance systems programming
