Functional language that transpiles to JavaScript.
Syntax
Literals
-- String
'i am a string'
-- Number
2.0
3
-- Boolean
true
false
-- Null
none
-- Maps
cat = {
@name 'Luna'
@age 2
}
-- Lists
[1, 2, 3, 4]
[1 2 3 4]
['h', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o']
-- Regular Expressions
/[A-Z]+/g
Functions
sum = fn [a b] a + b
-- invoking sum...
sum: 1, 2
-- functions can also be invoked with pipes
sum: 1, 2 | print -- print(sum(1, 2))
-- multiple expressions can be piped together
1 | id | print -- print(id(1))
-- previous args are carried over into function calls
-- also have some sugar functions such for operations like comparisons.
1 | sum: 2 | (== 3) -- sum(2, 1) == 3
-- function expressions with a body
fib = fn [n] {
if n < 2
then n
else (fib: n - 1) + (fib: n - 2)
}
-- IIFE
(fn [] {
number-of-balloons = 99
}): none
-- Anonymous functions
fn [x] x * x
-- we can pass those as args
call-function = fn [f arg] f: arg
call-function: (fn [x] x * x), 9 -- 81
-- There's also Pattern Matching and Guards
fact = fn [n]
1 ? 1
else ? n * (fact: n - 1)
-- splits up the list into x = head(list) and xs = tail(list)
sort-even-odd = fn [[x, & xs]]
not x ? []
odd: x ? (sort-even-odd: xs) ++ [x]
else ? x +: (sort-even-odd: xs)
[1 2 3 4 5 6] | sort-even-odd | assert-deep: [2 4 6 5 3 1]
