This artefact provides runnable versions of the code samples given in the main publication. An interpreter for the Stella language is provided together with a basic web-based IDE (syntax highlighting + running programs) which is able to run all Stella code given in the main publication. Also included are runnable implementations of the running example from the main publication (a simple wind turbine simulator) implemented in Stella and 6 other languages and frameworks (Akka, Flapjax, FrTime, ReactJS, REScala, and RxJS). While we do not discuss how these other technologies work, we highlight the interesting parts of the implementations of the running example: the difficulties we had, and any particular points of interest related to the claims made in the main publication.
