Grain vs Red: What are the differences?

Developers describe Grain as "A strongly-typed functional programming language". Grain is a strongly-typed functional programming language built for the modern web. Unlike other languages used on the web today (like TypeScript or Elm), Grain doesn’t compile into JavaScript. Grain complies all the way down to WebAssembly, and is supported by a tiny JavaScript runtime to give Grain access to web features that WebAssembly doesn’t yet support. On the other hand, Red is detailed as "Full-Stack programming language inspired by REBOL". It is both an imperative and functional programming language. Its syntax and general usage overlaps that of the interpreted Rebol language.

Grain and Red belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

Grain is an open source tool with 1.24K GitHub stars and 21 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Grain's open source repository on GitHub.
