Mech is a language for developing data-driven, reactive systems like animations, games, and robots. It makes composing, transforming, and distributing data easy, allowing you to focus on the essential complexity of your problem.
A graphical interface for Mech using a notebook metaphor. Mech notebook presents the world as a grid of cells, into which you can log data, write queries over that data, collect and write notes, draw interfaces, and design visualizations.
Note: Right now the editor is a text area and a region that draws program output, but this will eventually evolve into the above vision.
Building and Running
Download and install NodeJS and then run
> npm install
You can start a file server that will host the editor with
> npm start
Then navigate a browser to
localhost:8080. A packaged version can be built with
> npm run build
Mech is currently in the alpha stage of development. This means that while some features work and are tested, programs are still likely to crash and produce incorrect results. We've implemented some language features, but many are not yet implemented.
Feel free to use the language for your own satisfaction, but please don't use it for anything important.
