Brainscript is a scripting language that compiles to clean, readable Brainfuck.

This project is inspired by Jeremy Ashkenas' CoffeeScript.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send us a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
