Halunke is a dynamic, object-oriented language that has a simple grammar inspired by Smalltalk and Lisp. It is created to show that interesting characteristics traditionally described as "functional" make sense in an object-oriented language:
- Separation of identity and data (but not data and behavior)
- Immutability and persistent data structures
- Isolation of Side-Effects
- Pattern matching
It also has the following characteristics:
- There is no null/nil value in the language
- Playing close attention to error message design
