Gershwin Programming Language

Gershwin is a stack-based, concatenative programming language with a Clojure runtime that targets the JVM. It features a fusion of Clojure data structures, namespaces and concurrency semantics with an API inspired by the Factor concatenative programming language. With seamless Clojure interop, Gershwin can leverage all the power and reach of the Clojure/JVM ecosystem while also providing the unique features of stack-based, concatenative languages: composition by code concatenation, point-free expressions, data-flow combinators, and simple, powerful code factoring.

As an extension to Clojure, all legal Clojure code is legal Gershwin code. Gershwin changes to the Clojure reader, compiler, and public API are primarily additive and, as such, should not create compatibility conflicts with existing Clojure code bases. Please report any incompatibilities as bugs. The language versions of Gershwin and Clojure are both tracked in the Maven pom.xml file and available programmatically via the gershwin-version and clojure-version functions respectively.

Open Source Tools

I would like to thank the following companies for providing their tools free of charge to Gershwin developers as part of their contribution to the Open Source community.

JetBrains: Intellij IDEA

When I need to do Java, Scala, or JRuby development, I rely on Intellij IDEA's excellent support for JVM languages. I would like to thank JetBrains for granting Gershwin developers a free license to Intellij IDEA Ultimate.
