Thanks. These look great 😀 I’m going to look at both today.

Can I ask why you abandoned the rpython implementation?

@Self-interest list: Is there a list of Self implementations?

Thank you to all in this community for keeping this fascinating and important language alive! 

Best regards

Stephen

Hi,

if you are interested in rpython, you may be interested in my older and
mostly-working implementation of Self-like language:
https://github.com/Bystroushaak/tinySelf

The project was later abandoned in favour of java/graalvm version (
https://github.com/Bystroushaak/tinySelfEE ), which I develop from time
to time, but it should be still possible to compile it and run for fun.
