Alusus is designed to be a language for everything by making language features hot-pluggable, and on a per-project basis (rather than per-environment), which allows the language to:
- Expand vertically to cover low level features like those in C++ as well as high level features like those found in languages like Python or Ruby.
- Expand horizonatally to cover all aspects of programming which saves the user having to use more than one language.
- Allow anyone to enhance the language in a decentralized way, which allows users to develop new programming techniques or paradigms without having to start from scratch with a new language.
Imagine being able to write your client side code, server side code, DB access code, GPU shaders, etc, all in one language. Imagine switching between programming paradigms becomes a matter of picking up a different library rather than a different language. Imagine writing your program in a high level language while still being able to switch to low level for performance critical components. The goal of Alusus is to eventually make all that possible, but development is still in an early stage, and as of now Alusus provide low level procedural programming features.

Visit the downloads page for pre-built deb and rpm packages, or pre-built zip package.
Download the package for your system from the downloads page. Or just unpack the zip file into any directory on your system.
For Windows, you'll need to first enable WSL then either install the Linux package appropriate for your distro, or unpack the zip package.
Documentation is still lacking, but you can find some high level design documentation and examples on the documentation page.
