Starlib - Starlark's Missing standard Library.

Qri GoDoc License Codecov CI


This is a community-driven project to bring a standard library to the starlark programming dialect. We here at Qri need a standard library, and we thought it might benefit others to structure this library in a reusable way. We are a little biased towards our needs, and will be shaping the library primarily toward's Qri's use case.

Question Answer
"What's starlark?" It's a python-like scripting language open-sourced by Google. Here are the docs
"What's the use-case for this?" We're building it for Qri ('query')
"I want to play with starlib outside of Qri" Checkout the starlark playground
"I have a question" Create an issue
"I found a bug" Create an issue
"I would like to propose a new package" You should think about creating an RFC
