Searching for Emacs Lisp alternative? Try hacking Emacs in Go!
goism is Emacs package that makes it possible to use
Go programming language instead
of Emacs Lisp inside Emacs.
It provides Go intrinsics and
emacs package to make it
possible to control Emacs from your programs.
Generated functions, methods and variables can be accessed from
Emacs Lisp code.
Enjoy the increased type safety and curly braces!
How it works
Valid Go package is converted into Emacs Lisp bytecode.
goism package implements Go runtime,
so translated code behaves as
close to the specs as possible.
Different optimizations are performed during this translation, so it is not going to be any slower than "native" Emacs Lisp.
