on the banks of the O-rontes

I just wanted to highlight a rather interesting MOO-like project I came across on Github, Antioch. According to the readme,

Django-powered, standards-compliant web interface using Bootstrap, jQuery, REST and COMET

Sandboxed Pure-Python execution enables live programming of in-game code

PostgreSQL-backed object store scales to million of objects and provides transactional security during verb execution

Flexible plugin system, highly scalable messaging using RabbitMQ

I can’t say how far along it is but it looks pretty impressive. The author’s name, Phil Christensen, rang a bell — and then I realized that Phil (a rather interesting fellow himself) was working on txSpace (a cool Python MOO-like) a few years ago, and that it seems like Antioch is the next iteration of txSpace. Nice!
