PostgreSQL is an amazing multi-language development platform where you can mix and match programming languages and seamlessly call one language from other.

Still you are currently limited by what is made available by the developers or your Cloud provider. Often the choice is just between SQL, pl/pgsql, tcl, perl, JavaScript, python and R and even some of these may not be available because of specific security requirements.

In this talk I will show how a small change to pl/v8 support for transpiling LightScript and CoffeeScript has enabled the use of any JavaScript transpiler and vastly expanded the choice of languages in PostgreSQL without weakening security.

I will also discuss current state of pl-language support in PostgreSQL and where next improvements can be introduced.
