Reia is a language with Ruby-like syntax on top of the Erlang VM:

http://reia-lang.org/

It's been undergoing a bit of a transition, abandoning many of the features
which differentiate it from Erlang and focusing on merely providing a
cleaner syntax with destructive assignment:

This is inspired to a large degree by Robert Virding's Lisp Flavoured Erlang
(LFE), which does something similar.

Future versions of the language will focus on additional features which are
not present in the Erlang language itself,  Until then, Reia will focus on
attaining complete feature parity with Erlang and reaching a
production-quality implementation.
