Thank you both,

It feels like using the web API as the interface between the languages would be 
the simplest.

Guix might come in really handy if the web services are all running on the same 
Guix machine in which they can share the resources of the OS such as the file 

Then, using RAM-based or the real disk, different processes compiled in 
different languages can efficiently exchange data!

That's something that Guix and Nix can do more easily than using Docker web 
services on other OSes? 😄
