Started working on a per project in Rust (first time using Rust) .. a scripting language.

Rust is great, so fast, compiles in 0.5-1.2seconds on my $200 laptop as well! Pretty rare for safety, speed, AND compile speed to exist in one beautiful language.

Also my scripting language is the opposite of beautiful. Oh God.

    Have you tried D? I got addicted a year ago, but I'm gonna try Rust for the fun of it.

    But my damn Chromebook running Gentoo fucks up with Cargo shit...

    @anArchLinuxer no I haven't but I've heard good things. I may try it once I find a project to make with it, thanks for suggesting. Any cool repos in D you make/know?

    I haven't put it up yet, but I'm making a custom standard library cos their standard library is truly shit. Not in code, but in performance and size. I like system programming, and a good example is PowerNex. The only thing weird about it is that it uses a cross compiler for DMD (the reference implementation). If you are making a project and want control and optimizations, use GDC.
    You could just search github with `language:d` and check out what comes by. You can do crazy higher-level shit, though, even though I generally stay away from that.
    Also, metaprogramming in D is freaking awesome. You can write the whole fucking program to run at compile time if you obey a few rules.
    Best place to get addicted to D (with editable examples): https://tour.dlang.org
