Clojure-based x86 assembler and toy Lisp compiler
branch: master

Lithium is an attempt at several things at once:

  • An assembler for x86 CPUs, written in Clojure and using Clojure S-expressions as its input data. This part has been first announced in this blog post.
  • A compiler for a toy Lisp-like language, using that assembler as a backend. The compiler is being written following the guidelines found in a paper "An Incremental Approach to Compiler Construction."

The purposes of Lithium are, first and foremost, to learn and to have fun.
