The blazingkin open source programming language (blz-ospl)

Stable - Build Status

Nightly - Build Status

blz is an easy to use, fast, and portable scripting language implemented using the JVM.

The goal is to provide programmers with high levels of abstraction to increase developer velocity.

Getting Started

Directions for installing the language are available on the Docs Site

Example Code

Hello World

print("Hello World!")

Factorial

:main
	print("What number would you like the factorial of?")
	input = number_input()
	print(fact(input))
end

:fact(num)
	if num <= 1
		1	# The last line of a method is automatically returned
	else
		num * fact(num - 1)
	end
end

Constructors / Objects

:main
	# Make a new Ball and name it red_ball
	red_ball = Ball("red", 2)
	
	# Examine its properties
	print(red_ball.name())
	print(red_ball.volume())
	
end

# Constructors can take parameters (that automatically become properties)
constructor Ball(color, radius)
	
	# Objects can also have functions (closures)
	:volume
		return 4/3 * {pi} * (radius ** 3)
	end
	:name
		return "a " + color + " ball with radius " + radius
	end
	
end

Building the Project

The project comes precompiled in a .jar file, so you should be able to use it immediately after cloning. However, if you are interested in contributing you may have to rebuild the project.

See this wiki page to see how to build the language.
