As a result of the discussions below, I want to present a what seems to be very valid replacement for Python:
It is dynamic, fresh as fuck, many say it will be one of the main languages in the not so far future. So far it is already very well supported, documentation is extensive and the community is pretty big, as well.
The main reason why I see this language as a replacement for Python is that it covers all the use cases that Python is used for, additionally to it being usable for other purposes just as well. That fact and just the simple fact that Python is in my opinion just a cumbersome annoyance to fight with, pushes me toward looking at Julia and hoping most apps will be written by using this language instead of all that Python, of which there is still too much version 2.7 code out there.
That said, I don’t personally use Julia (yet?), because I already have to use Java professionally and use another language privately that I really adore, which is sadly not yet as ready for the majority of people as Julia seems to be.
