A small correction here : Crystal is not essentially a compiled version of Ruby. It has of course the same syntax, but it has its own path, its own features, and the retro-compatibility with Ruby is not a goal.

agreed, didn't mean to imply the tooling or libraries are the same, but that if you wanted the benefits of a compiled language in a Ruby syntactical wrapper, Crystal fills that role (and Nim for Python)
