Actually Build Status Build status PyPI license codecov CII Best Practices

A golfing language that is probably terrible. It is currently being developed. Actually is the spiritual successor to Seriously. Actually is stack-based, and is unique in its amount of single-character commands. Every character whose ordinal is in [0,255] does something (or will, once I finish development).

All strings are valid programs. There is no such thing as a syntax error, and anything that appears to be a runtime error is actually a no-op (NOP). If you call a command that expects a string on top of the stack, but the top value is an integer, instead of throwing an error, it silently performs a NOP. Eventually, this will not be seen, as the goal for Seriously is for every character and stack state to map to a command.

Seriously's name was inspired by this challenge. Actually followed because it is also an adverb, and it also looks funny in answer headers.
