The heading for that section is "Programming, Scripting, and Markup Languages".
[*]GO is a dead programming language, abandoned by google, and try to survive in opensouce; but it's in this top list
I tried finding news of Google abandoning Go, but came up empty. If you have a link to an announcement from Google that would be handy, for many; Go is very
popular, with strong growth currently.
IIRC it was always open source. Indeed, aside from an ever-smaller pool comprised of mostly legacy systems, nearly every programming language in common use today is open source.
Open source isn't where software goes to die. It's where most of the world's infrastructure systems, like programming languages, go to thrive.
[*]Typescript is before Ruby
Why is that surprising? What is it about Typescript that has been lacking in the work you've considered it for?
Ruby seems a fine language, but without Rails is not as commonly used, and like any scripted framework Rails carries a bit of overhead.
[*]Bash in the top 5 of professionals
Bash is the go-to choice for systems administration for macOS, other Unix flavors, Linux, and now Windows. Robust, flexible, proven with decades of use and expanded with thousands of contributors and millions of pages of documentation, no other language does quite what bash does, and bash does it well.
Given bash's unique role as the lingua franca of sysadmin, and that administering systems (a broad catagory, which includes everything that doesn't require a GUI and provides under-the-hood support for a great many that do) is such a pervasive need, common use of bash should not be surprising.
There must be tons of users of Livecode?
are you serious? Livecode is a secret
programming language known by very few programmers. We are a secret society
. Even livecode homepage doesn't show anything anymore, just two huge Lego toys to mislead newcomers.
Above the choice of orienting materials indicated by the two figures is:
Build Powerful Apps Faster
Make your app talents go further. Join our community of 100,000+ today
Not bad, clearly identifying what it is and the size of the community.
Following that are a list of key bullet points of the sort you've frequently requested, emphasizing the scope of platform coverage, ease of development, and extensibility.
It will of course be wonderful to see LC in the top 50 on TIOBE, but getting in the bottom 50 has been a very good start, something most languages never achieve. Moving up isn't a function of marketing slogans, but of developer results: what is being accomplished with it.
The future of LiveCode is in our hands: build great software and tell the world how you did it.
