Streem

Build Status Gitter

Streem is a stream based concurrent scripting language. It is based on a programming model similar to the shell, with influences from Ruby, Erlang, and other functional programming languages.

Note: Streem is still in the design stage. It's not working yet. Stay tuned.

Examples

In Streem, a simple cat program looks like this:

stdin | stdout

Streem is a (sort of) DSL for data flows. Above code means building data-flow connection between stdin and stdout. Actual data processing will be done in the event loop invoked after program execution.

For another example, a simple FizzBuzz will look like this:

# seq(100) returns a stream of numbers from 1 to 100.
# A function object in pipeline works as a map function.
# stdout is an output destination.
seq(100) | map{x->
  if (x % 15 == 0)     "FizzBuzz"
  else if (x % 3 == 0) "Fizz"
  else if (x % 5 == 0) "Buzz"
  else                 x
} | stdout

The second part in the pipeline ({x ->...}) is a function object. If a function object is connected in the pipeline, it will be invoked for each element in the stream.

Compiling

Installing dependencies

  • bison
  • flex
  • gcc / clang

Run make

make

Please note that Streem will not run any scripts yet, but you can check parse files and check syntax.
