Looks like Coq has now overtaken Standard ML on both GitHub and Stackoverflow: https://redmonk.com/sogrady/files/2021/08/lang.rank_.0621-1024x807.png
Lean also shows up in lower left just above Logos.

Coq more popular than wasm :tada:
Looks like we should convert zulip questions to SO questions ...
Coq has a 30 year headstart when compared to WASM, though...
indeed, WASM might explode through the ranks in the near future, giving us an unending assembly renaissance
I just did a two our lecture using jscoq to run coq in wasm on the browser. So, we can all play nicely together :-)
This repository is a clone of github.com/WebAssembly/spec/. It is meant for discussion, prototype specification and implementation of a proposal to add tail call support to WebAssembly.
I guess we can revisit in a decade or two when they have agreed at a proposal for a committee to deliver a proposal for suggesting an implementation of tailcalls in special cases
didn't notice until now, but OCaml is neck-and-neck with Haskell on GitHub, but Haskell is much higher on StackOverflow. Is it maybe all those monads that need explaining?
@Karl Palmskog : I think (just gut feeling, no solid data) Haskell is more widely used in university teaching than OCaml, while OCaml and Haskell have a similar user base among professionals.
I guess all those French students using OCaml go to different forums than StackOverflow also
French students do read StackOverflow questions and answers but probably do not ask as much.
