Guile-Emacs continues forward with GSoC.
The Guile folks are looking for programmers curious about contributing, having some fun, and possibly winning a monetary reward for their work! Details here.
The code is original from the author, I just packaged it up!
Here is one way to install it:
(require 'package) (when (not (package-installed-p 'geiser)) (url-copy-file "https://www.wisdomandwonder.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/geiser-0.2.1.tar" "/tmp/geiser-0.2.1.tar" t) (package-install-file "/tmp/geiser-0.2.1.tar"))
Guile adds among other things hygienic-macros and Unicode support. Awesome!
In this thread the OP discusses implementing Lua on top of Guile as an extension language. It seems that it might be eligible for Google’s SOC sponsorship. While the OP doesn’t mention wanting help, it is interesting, and who knows other folks might like to contribute.
