There are many alternatives to Python. Like Nim or Dart:
Nim seems quite interesting indeed, even if I'm not sure how well
it scales. It looks like a language that is prowd of a heavy use
of macros and DSL definition à la lisp. I know lisp enough to
know that it's not a problem in itself, but that it should be
developed wisely. It may look at first as a better alternative
than D for a pure python developer, but I'll stick with D.
However, I can't see a pythonista being excited in Dart at all,
at least not for what he finds in python. More restricted in any
way, no clear functional orientation possible, a clear lack of
expressiveness... D clearely has the advantage there.
