Hey there! I need help to help make my dream language come true.
I want to create a language named Zala, the language built for the internet. It's an online-only programming language that runs on the cloud.
This idea was inspired by repl.it. I used repl.it because it was able to provide a free and open environment to run my programs in. My computer specs never mattered here.
Zala is a way for the web to communicate with itself. Web Apps can communicate with each other faster. And the best thing about Zala is this: No matter what device you're on, (well except devices that can't connect to the internet), Zala will work on. From your car display to the cloud, Zala will work.
With Zala, I envision a future where there is no need for higher computer specs to run the new generation of programs. But this future is locked, and we need a key.
Zala is our key.
And to my future partners, I won't ever ignore your ideas. Zala doesn't only have to be about the web. It can also be about machine learning, database handling, and more. Zala's goal is to create an accessible language available for everyone and every device.
The only thing I ask for is good experience with python, and maybe how compilers work. For Zala, I may use PLY or Lark (I suggest using Lark because it allows you to skip both Lexing and Parsing by just defining grammar rules. And after that, it's still easy to work with), or maybe even a hand-built lexer/parser.
If you already have an idea for a language, that's fine. But if you truly do believe in my vision, you can help by merging your language ideas with mine.
And to top it all off, there's no reason for a limit of partners. If you want to help, you can. Zala should be a public and open-source project that everybody should be able to work on.
Here's my discord - oooffff#1900
well I am still learning languages so I wish I could offer my help but I ain't great but I know the loguc behind a compiler (couldn't code one but can still learn) and have v e r y basic knowledge in python like only the first few things you would learn
The idea of Zala sounds cool. I'm just thinking, why limit it to online-only? Would love to hear more about the details!
Ha, I was aiming for a web-focused langauge to beat JS, but this seems nice, how're you gonna do it?
