Vala is fine. Peasy itself is written in Vala (at least partly). Peasy 
generates a .vapi for Geany's APIs and one for peasy's own APIs (there 
are very few of them at the moment). If you don't need peasy's APIs you 
can write the plugin such that it doesn't require peasy.

Other language options with peasy are whatever libpeas supports. This 
comprises python and lua at the moment. js was dropped by libpeas at 
some point. I haven't tested lua yet with peasy though.

I'd like to add ruby in the future but I don't know if I can manage.

Peasy is quite stable at this point and runs against Geany 1.28 without 
patches by now. I'm in the process of polishing the shipped plugins 
before I declare it stable.

Best regards.
