Ideas for programming language


A simple, lisp-like, and functional language for experimenting with making a language.

Variable declarations

Variables are declared on the stack, declaring one can be done with the = function. Variables are marked as being constant upon being assigned, and cannot be reassigned again within the current function. The assignment function takes two arguments, name:String and value:Any. Since it's just a function, you can pass in a variable for the name to have dynamically resolved names within the current scope.

Assigning to a variable example:

path = items:(pathStart pathEnd?) {return items[0].concat(items[1])}
pathStart = (items:(pathItem / singleParam / single)+)
pathEnd = item:(multiParam / multi / lastItem) {return item}
pathItem = text:pathName "/" {return {type: "text", content: text}}
lastItem = text:pathName "/"?

This is a neat idea I had for having variables that act like primitive values but are actually functions. Useful for having complex variables that automagically update.
View R.js
// This calls the function whenever a primitive is needed
function R(fn){
return {
return fn()+"";

This is a filter I made that makes reading news more fun, I got the idea from Since it's a userscript it should be easily install-able in Chrome or Firefox. In chrome it's as simple as downloading this file and dragging it into your "extensions" window.
