Pikelet is a small, functional, dependently typed programming language.
Dependent types allow us to do a bunch of really interesting things, like using records for modules, declaring the length of arrays at the type level, and much more — many of great utility for low-level and high-level code alike!
We hope to one day grow Pikelet into fully-fledged systems programming language,
with support for unboxed data types, control over memory layout and allocation
strategy, linear types, and a flexible phase distinction and support for calling
other languages. At the moment however we've only implemented a type checker and
very slow interpreter, so don't get your hopes up too much yet! There's still a
whole lot to do before it is even remotely useful to anyone!
Check out our plans in the roadmap.
