Esoteric IDE is an interpreter and debugger for some esoteric programming languages (or esolangs).
- Allows you to run code in any supported esolang
- Allows you to set breakpoints
- Allows you to debug through code step by step
- Displays the execution state (program state) at every step (kinda like a watch window)
- In some esolangs, displays information about the instruction the cursor is on
In chronological order of implementation in Esoteric IDE:
- Sclipting — Similar to GolfScript but using Chinese characters.
- Ziim — 2D language using only arrows (← ↑ → ↓ etc.).
- Brainfuck — The classic. Supports many different flavours, e.g. cells can be byte-size or arbitrary-size; output can be as numbers or as Unicode characters.
- Quipu — Inspired by the ancient Inca’s quipu system of recording information as knots in a thread, thus also known as talking knots.
- Unreadable — Consists only of apostrophe (
') and double-quote (
- Mornington Crescent — Travel on the London Underground, but remember to always come back to Mornington Crescent.
- Hexagony — Program instructions and memory locations are laid out in a 2D hexagonal grid.
- Labyrinth — Two-dimensional stack-based language where the code can self-modify by applying cycling rotations of rows or columns of characters.
- Stack Cats — Reversible programming language in which every program must be a mirror image of itself.
- Whitespace — Only space, tab and newline are significant.
How to compile
You have several options:
- Download the full source from the Releases page. This contains the source for Esoteric IDE and all its dependencies, but not the git repo.
- Clone this and RT.Util from github. Place the two repos at the same level in your folder hierarchy.
- If you just want compiled binaries of the newest commit (as opposed to the newest release), you can download those from the artifacts page on AppVeyor.
