Arc vs Optic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Arc as "A dialect of the Lisp programming language developed by Paul Graham and Robert Morris". Arc is designed for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software. On the other hand, Optic is detailed as "Automate routine programming". .

Arc and Optic are primarily classified as "Languages" and "Code Automation" tools respectively.

Optic is an open source tool with 154 GitHub stars and 6 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Optic's open source repository on GitHub.
