Lamdu aims to achieve its goal by:
✅ Text-like user interface: A predictable user interface with rich code completions, without the possiblity of syntax errors
✅ Responsive layout: Continuous, automatic code formatting without the user needing to deal with formatting
✅ Steady Typing: Harnessing the full power of rich static types, while making them friendly by employing type inference with a novel user interface for type errors
✅ Live reloading: Safe continuous execution of code by differentianting pure computations from effectful processes
✅ Internationalization (NEW!): Making the natural language of the code just a display preference
Version 0.8.0 (Release notes):
The current release is a technology preview and isn't yet recommended for production use. Creating a programming language that isn't based on text-files is no small feat. The goal is to create a competetive, fully-featured programming language and environment but there is still so much to be done.
Lamdu is an open-source project originally created late in 2011.
