Mini Scheme

My implementation of a Scheme like toy programming language written in TypeScript. The project was greatly inspired by the books The Little Schemer and The Seasoned Schemer from Daniel P. Friedman and Matthias Felleisen and especially by the cute illustrations of Duane Bibby. I also liked SICP when I read it a few years ago, and always wanted to come up with my own functional looking something something.

The most iteresting part, that actually made me to implement this was the call-with-current-continuation construct or call/cc for short (experienced Lispers and Schemers are now probably banging their heads agains the wall because of me not drawing a clear difference between the two). I just wanted to play with this construct a bit so that I understand it better. Also I haven't written an interpreter that supported anything like that before, so it was the best time to start.

Since a simple interpreter would have been too simple and not very interesting to demo, I also added an editor (built on ACE) and some very limited debugging functionality.

The project is hosted on csokavar.hu.
