The Io Language

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • io

    Io programming language. Inspired by Self, Smalltalk and LISP.

    Hope they will add this link on the site: https://github.com/IoLanguage/io/tree/master/samples/misc

  • ocaml

    The core OCaml system: compilers, runtime system, base libraries

    A code snippet showing a simple program right on the home page and "selling" whatever features makes it special would go a long way. It's quite off-putting to have to delve deep into a guide in order to get a feel for a language.

    Some examples done right:

    https://lfe.io

    https://elixir-lang.org

    https://imba.io

    https://ocaml.org

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • imba

    🐤 The friendly full-stack language

  • graal-io

    Io programming language. Implemented in GraalVM virtual machine (VM)

    There is an implementation of Io for GraalVM: https://github.com/guillermomolina/graal-io

    This guy started furiously implementing it at the beginning of the year but stopped at the end of February. ( My guess is he's got a new job ).

    There have been many attempts at implementing the language in a "more solid" base, ie. on top of "languages" that take care of garbage collection like JS, Go, Java/JVM.

    I hadn't the opportunity to test this Graal implementation, since I didn't have the time and it is/was a very much work-in-progress and some scripts aren't supported on Windows, but I suspect a complete and community supported Graal implementation will be the ticket for Io.

    It's be an incredible dynamic language paired with an incredible strong and robust VM and ecosystem( think libraries, tools, manpower, etc. )

    I really hoped I had the chops at language implementation to make this a reality, but after watching the development I'm waayy out of this league.
