Welcome to the cali.lang.base wiki!

This repository houses the base interpreter for the Cali programming language. This is meant to be the base interpreter to build upon or embed for a more useful coding experience. With that said this project can be used to run code from the command line.


Cali requires a recent JDK (>= 1.6) and version of maven. To build, simply clone the repo and run maven package from the project directory.

> cd cali.lang.base/
> mvn clean package

If all went well you should now have a target directory with the compiled software. Yes, score!

If you want to embed Cali interpreter within another project, all you need to do is grab the .jar file add it to the new project or add the Maven dependency.


If you'd like to run some Cali code, read on. =)

Running Cali Code

Although this project is the base interpreter and is missing most common standard library functions one would want, the interpreter is able to execute code and the generated JAR file comes with a program entry point for running a code file from the command line.

After building (see above) you can run the built JAR file with no args to get the program information.

> java -jar target/cali.lang.base-1.0.1-jar-with-dependencies.jar

Error, incorrect number of arguments. Expecting script file name.

If you want to run the interpreter tests, run the following command. You should see something like the output below.

> java -jar target/cali.lang.base-1.0.1-jar-with-dependencies.jar tests/

There's also a very basic file in the examples directory you may run.

You can create your own Cali code file and run it using the same syntax as used in the first two examples.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
