Can we make a new Programming Language
[deleted]

Hello friends, I know this is weird but Let me just Say it.
Is it actually possible to create a new programming Language like C++ and other. I saw Go( A language made by Google). So is it actually possible, I know it is not within my reach but if the whole team of Repl.it comes together,it is possible. Just a suggestion to start a new project. I found a few videos on YouTube and got inspired though nothing went in my head 😩

NOTE

I have no idea about it just an inspiration.😃

I know someone made at the least a transpilar on here a while ago, also someone else made a lua interpreter and a third person was in the process of making a c compiler I think it was so it’s definitely a thing :P

@Highwayman yes compiler and transpilers are a part of making a programming language but a full Language need a lot of work, eh?

@MrHackman A compiler is the complete translation machinery for a programming language. True, some run-time support and a standard library might be needed, but the most tricky part is the translator.

@CaptainAnon Hmm.As bytecode is the advantage of java. All languages can't translate the source code to bytecode.

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman True, but why wouldn't people use Java instead of the language we might write?

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Why people use GO (language made by google). Also Java has its own cons. So if we make the language to remove all the cons (pretty hard). Why people won't use it?I

@MrHackman con number 1: it uses byte code.

Making it

S L O W

@Highwayman But platform independent.

Highwayman (1293)

@MrHackman the again. You are making an interpreter, so I guess it’ll be slow anyways,

[deleted]

@Highwayman ??? hmm

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman Go has distinct advantages which don't exist in other languages to date. It also has the corporate backing of Google and has a clear domain of application in writing microservices.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon That is undeniable though.🤔

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Check out the advantages

Golang has efficient concurrency, like C, C++, Java, and at the same time concurrency in Go is done much easier thanks to goroutines, channels, and garbage collection.

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman True, but our language would have to have advantages which haven't been implemented yet.

@CaptainAnon

If we make it and we need some one with a hacker plan as they have unlimited invites

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman I have a hacker plan, and I'm happy to create the repl but I think that we need to establish in what way our programming language would be different.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Only way to do that is to contact the makers of Repl.it like @amasad

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman I don't think that's necessarily true. What problems do you see with existing popular languages such as Python?

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon I said in the question

Just a suggestion to start a new project. I found a few videos on YouTube and got inspired though nothing went in my head 😩

Highwayman (1293)

@MrHackman I agree with @CaptainAnon , ya’ll definitely should think about how your lang will stand out + all those other specifications.

Nice think tank you got going here by the way :P

Let’s make a small list of things we have discussed so far in the thread about programming languages.
1) true speed (idk - eh)
2) portable "compiled" results (byte code - coolio)
3) efficient concurrency (goroutines - noice)
4) general ease of use (python/go - yee)
5) nothing else.(at least that I’ve seen)

Of these so far, what is it ya’ll want the most? What else do you guys like about other languages? What things do you guys hate about other languages?

[deleted]

@Highwayman I am making a list in a pastebin

Highwayman (1293)

What do you have down so far? @MrHackman

[deleted]

@Highwayman Actually NOTHING

Highwayman (1293)

@MrHackman
Oh. :(

Well, I mean, you got 4 things right there that I made..
