- Use `set -e`
- Remove useless semicolon
- Don't use `&&`

* Use QuasiQuote instead of cons&snoc combi

* typing._type_repr contain module's name

* Show proper typehints

* Implement __ne__ for python2

* Remove useless space

* Don't call __eq__ in __ne__

* Show representation properly

* stash

* Use qualified import

* Refactor sourceDirectory

* Rename emptyContext to empty

* Ignore pyc & tox

* Use typeReprCompiler

* Change missing return type annotation

Nirum is an IDL compiler and RPC/distributed object framework for microservices, built on top of the modern Web server technologies such as RESTful HTTP and JSON.

You can find how its IDL looks like from source codes in the examples/ directory.

Note that its design is highly unstable and could be changed. Also the feature set is incomplete yet.

Nightly builds

The easiest way to give a try to use Nirum is downloading a nightly build. We currently provides the prebuilt binaries of the following platforms:

Getting started

In order to compile a Nirum package (examples/) to a Python package:

$ mkdir out/  # directory to place generated Python files
$ nirum -o out/ examples/

For more infomration, use --help option:

$ nirum --help
Nirum Compiler 0.3.0


Common flags:
  -o --output-dir=DIR   The directory to place object files
  -? --help             Display help message
  -V --version          Print version information
     --numeric-version  Print just the version number


If you already installed Haskell Platform or Haskell Stack, you can build the project in the same way to build other Haskell projects.

Using Haskell Stack:

$ stack build

Using vanilla Cabal:

$ cabal sandbox init
$ cabal install --only-dependencies
$ cabal configure
$ cabal build

You can run the test suite of Nirum:

$ stack test  # using Hasekll Stack
$ cabal test  # using Haskell Platform
$ ./   # run style lint as well
