Avisynth? Similar programs? Recommendable?

Hey guys,

I have not posted in literally ears, I mean, years. I am surprised the site
still exists.

I switched to linux in 2004. A few years ago Microsoft started WSL and
then WSL2. This makes it really easy to use all my scripts that I wrote
in almost 20 years.

I wrote TONS of code, mostly in ruby but also in other languages. I also
already tested WSL1 extensively, it works fine, even GUIs if one uses
xming (well, most work ... not all). And WSL2 may be better.

Anyway. Before I switched to linux, I was happily using avisynth.

I want to get to the same experience again but have it work on both
linux and windows AND perhaps not a 1:1 mapping syntaxwise but
my own custom layer. But ... is avisynth dead? Are the alternatives

My idea is to write some custom DSL that is SUPER simple but
mega-expressive. When I have such a basic core available I can
embed it into ruby-gtk. But the important thing is that I really want
to keep it as simple as possible. Avisynth was great but it also
was quite complex; some examples I never understood. Ideally
I want something that even a 3 years old one can understand -
and I am not even kidding. I think everyone should be ABLE to
program, and it should be mega-simple too. (Actually Avisynth
was not too complex either ... just that some examples were
hard to understand).

So does anyone know of the status here? Anything that can be
recommended? I really need a commandline/scripted approach,
don't care about pre-written GUIs (I can write my own ones via
ruby-gtk and web-related interfaces; I did that for almost 10 years
or more by now and the rest I will learn as I go along, but my
memory of avisynth is MEGA-dusty).

AviSynth for Linux, go go go!
