Prymate

Codacy Badge Tests

A simple interpreter for the 🐒 Monkey Language (described in the book Writing an Interpreter in Go by Thorsten Ball) written in 🐍 Python.

Installation

You can install the interpreter through pip by:
pip install -U prymate

You can also get the latest version through this git repo, and building the package yourself through poetry. Tests are included in the tests subfolder in this repository.
You can run the said tests by cloning the repo, and executing the run_tests.bat file on Windows, and run_tests.sh on Linux/Mac OS.

Usage

You can start the Monkey Language REPL through the command prymate with no arguments.

$ prymate

Prymate 0.4.1 [Running on Windows]
Type exit() to exit from the REPL.

>>> puts("Hello, World!")
Hello, World!
null

Or, you can run a file by specifying the file path through the -f or --file argument.

$ prymate -f <path to file>

...

Features

Prymate interprets the canon monkey language without any hitch and adds on top of it. All the features in the canon monkey language can be used with prymate.

Additions:

  1. Additional Inbuilt Functions like help, exit, type, gets, sumarr, zip, int, str, and more.

  2. String != and == operations are supported.

  3. Modulo % for determining the remainder of the expression a / b.

  4. Floating point literals (type FLOAT in the interpreter).

  5. Variable mutability (Reassign an already declared variable, a value).

  6. While Loops.

  7. Constants

I plan to add support for more things in the future. Examples for the above additions coming soon.

Changelog

v0.4.1

  1. Massively improve typing. mypy is relatively quiet now.

Acknowledgements

This interpreter wouldn't be possible without the excellent Writing an Interpreter in Go by Thorsten Ball.
I highly recommend you to read it, and build your own monkey interpreter!
