Arcyóu is a LISP-like functional programming language suitable for code golf. It has a large library of potentially useful functions, all one or two characters in length.
Here are some real PPCG puzzles which Arcyóu can solve in a small amount of bytes:
"Hello, World!" ; 15 bytes
Q ; 1 byte?!
(?(#(l))(@ 1(p 1))0 ; 19 bytes
(p?(#(l ; 7 bytes
(@ t(pn(zz 1)(p(st %H:%M:%S ; 27 bytes
I would be lying if I didn't admit that I picked the Lisp syntax partially because of how easy it was to parse. But the idea behind Arcyóu is for it to be the Mathematica of golfing languages and have a builtin for everything, a feature which should easily offset the byte cost of parentheses.
To run an Arcyóu program you find on the Web somewhere, save it to a file, then run
arc.py in a Python 3.x interpreter with the file's name as a command-line argument. Example in a bash shell:
$ python3 arc.py myprogram.arc
You can also run the interpreter without any arguments to start an interactive read-eval-print loop, or REPL, session. Here's an example session:

The documentation is a work in progress, but what there is of it can be found on the wiki for Arcyóu's GitHub repository.
