I was on the hunt for a scripting language/solution, as a lot of the time I felt bash becomes unmaintainable after a certain complexity. I needed something after bash, but before Rust and Scala.

I had lots of experience with #Perl, but I don’t like its package management.

I am not too fond of python, and I only have a brief experience with it, and as far as I know package management isn’t too good either.

And that was when I came across babashka. I’ve used #Clojure to implement a web UI for a pet project before. At that time I also found it unmaintainable without sufficient test support, best practices. Especially when you need to pick it up again after almost a year. But for smaller scripts it might be a good choice!
