GNU lightning

https://www.gnu.org/software/lightning/
GNU lightning is a library that generates assembly language code at run-time; it is very fast, making it ideal for Just-In-Time compilers, and it abstracts over the target CPU, as it exposes to the clients a standardized RISC instruction set inspired by the MIPS and SPARC chips.

Documentation

GNU lightning is a library to aid in making portable programs that compile assembly code at run time.
