Purr is a small functional language designed for writing concurrent web-servers. It focuses on ease of development, security and concurrency.
(See the Rationale page for more details)
The language is still in REALLY EARLY STAGES of development. While it's usable, there's absolutely no optimisations in the compiler whatsoever, and the standard library and tooling are lacking many features. Do note also that the language is constantly changing at this stage.
You'll need to clone the repository, install the dependencies, and compile the Sweet.js/OMeta files (you'll need Make, and Node properly installed).
$ git clone git://github.com/robotlolita/purr.git $ cd purr $ npm install $ make all $ bin/ipurr Type :quit to exit (or ^D). *** Loaded the Prelude from: /home/queen/Projects/PLs/purr/Platform/Prelude.purr > "Hello, world" => (<string>) Hello, World >
