Emojicode Build Status Join the chat at https://gitter.im/emojicode/emojicode

Emojicode is an open source, high-level, multi-paradigm programming language consisting of emojis. It features Object-Orientation, Optionals, Generics and Closures.

🏁 Getting Started

To learn more about the language and get started quickly visit Emojicode’s documentation.

You can easily install Emojicode from our stable prebuilt binaries. See Installing Emojicode for instructions.

πŸ”¨ Building from source

If you don’t want to use the prebuilt binaries, you can of course also build Emojicode from source.

These build instructions only apply to the latest code in the master branch. To build previous versions, please consult the according README.md by cloning the repository and checking out a version: git checkout v0.3

Prerequisites (earlier versions might work but are not tested):

  • clang and clang++ 3.9 or newer, or
  • gcc and g++ 5.4 or newer
  • CMake 3.5.1 and (preferably) Ninja
  • Python 3.5.2 or above to pack for distribution and run tests
  • Allegro 5 to compile the allegro package
    • sudo apt-get install liballegro5-dev on Debian/Ubuntu
    • brew install allegro on OS X

Steps:

  1. Clone Emojicode (or download the source code and extract it) and navigate into it:

    git clone https://github.com/emojicode/emojicode
    cd emojicode
    
  2. Create a build directory and run CMake in it:

    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake .. -GNinja
    

    You can specify the heap size in bytes, which defaults to 512MB, with -DheapSize and the default package search path with -DdefaultPackagesDirectory like so:

    cmake -DheapSize=128000000 -DdefaultPackagesDirectory=/opt/strange/place .. -GNinja
    

    You can of course also run CMake in another directory or use another build system than Ninja. Refer to the CMake documentation for more information.

  3. Build the Compiler and Real-Time Engine:

    ninja
    
  4. You can now test Emojicode:

    ninja tests
    

    and take the distribution package created inside the build directory.
