Ideas for a polyglot programming project

Last Modified: 2020-11-21
I have to make a polyglot programming project. Something that runs into at least 1000 or preferably 3-4k lines of code.
Also there is following requirement for the project :
3 languages must be used
 * At least one “systems” language (like C, C++, Go, Rust).
• At least one “scripting” language (like Bash, JavaScript, Julia, Perl, PHP, Python, R, Tcl).
• C and C++ count as one language.
• SQL, HTML,CSS,etc dont count
But i am running short of ideas.
(i) The first thing that comes to my mind is make some web application to start with something simple one.
Backend java spring etc, front end use javascript .
But there are two gaps in this idea
1) Not sure what the third language could be. Probably pass the input from javascript to server and do some heavy calculation using C. Not sure if that is possible. So 3 language condition is met

2) The code should run in more than 1000 lines..or better to say good quality code in more than 1000 lines in total. Not sure what to pick up to achieve that. Any simple web application would be finsihed in few hundred lines...
May be could add more complexity to it.

(ii) I can think of some file conversion tool. May be image compression or conversion of plain text into markdown..
The issue is still the same will it go above 1000 lines... and the third language.

Any ideas etc will be helpful.
