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.😃

It's definitely possible, the question is what advantages would said new language have over existing languages?

@CaptainAnon If all support that it is possible,It must be implemented.For nothing is possible without implementation

@MrHackman But why would people use it if it doesn't do anything different to existing programming languages and is less well known and thus less desirable from a career point of view and has a less strong community than existing languages?

@CaptainAnon if it looks better or is easier to use they might use it even if it doesn't change anything.

@sugarfi Other languages have large communities which can provide support - e.g. Stackoverflow questions.

@CaptainAnon Make a community in Repl.it itself for it like Golang

@MrHackman But why wouldn't people on repl.it use other languages they already know such as Python which have decades of optimisation under their belt?

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Yes but as I said that a new language will provide undue advantages. If a single language provide all advantages of Java, C,C#,C++,python and all. They will learn it. It is an all in one like all in one tacos

@MrHackman The problem here is that you can't have everyting. You have to pick and choose. The flexibility that Python offers comes directly at the expense of performance, due to dynamic programming.

@CaptainAnon Hmm. But we must focus the best or the advantage needed at this era of coding as of now.

@MrHackman I think the downside with building domain-specific programming languages is that domains evolve rapidly and the languages built around them are likely to go out of fashion with the domain.

@CaptainAnon yes, but you need to actually make a language before you make it popular and different.

@CaptainAnon Any positive?

@sugarfi I don't think that's true. You can't just start building the translator without knowing what the language looks like given that the design of the translator is intimately bound together with the function the language is designed to deliver.

@CaptainAnon it doesn't have to be a translator: in fact most languages are interpreted or compiled, rather than transpiled.
