Spider Programming Language


#1

Hey,

I built a little programming language that compiles to JavaScript coming from a hybrid app development mindset.

What do you think?
Would you use it in your Ionic apps?

Looks very nice. Always a bit cautious of things like this CoffeeScript as one often ends up spending more time learning a new syntax for little to no benefit. I quite like your approach as it touches on the areas that annoy me most about JavaScript and introduces some nice syntactic sugar. I also like the focus on type safety and the compile-time errors.

I still need convincing the benefits are outweigh the additional layer and complexity though but I may for once be willing to give it a try.

An Ionic template that adds Spider compilation into the build workflow would offer further encouragement… :smile:
