There are a lot of programming languages that aren't very well-known now, but may have some interesting features. I keep finding a new one every now and then.

They may have faded to obscurity, they may still be in development, they may serve a small niche, or they may just not have caught on.

Do you know any? Any language that is not too popular and has at least one cool feature is welcome!

I consider these languages to be 'established', but if you have a useful-but-obscure feature, that's welcome:

  • Bash
  • C
  • C#
  • C++
  • Coffeescript
  • Csh
  • CSS
  • Go
  • HTML
  • Java
  • Javascript
  • Julia
  • Kotlin
  • Matlab
  • Objective-C
  • Octave
  • PHP
  • Python
  • R
  • Ruby
  • Rust
  • Scala
  • SQL
  • Swift
  • Typescript
  • Visual Basic
