A language for humans and computers
Fin fact: The Invidious client uses it.
# Notice that both Int32 and String respond_to `to_s`
foo = ENV["FOO"]? || 10
typeof(foo) # => (Int32 | String)
typeof(shout(foo)) # => String
So, static duck typing?
I mean, if this can provide the dynamic typing crowd 70% of the rigidity of a more explicitly typed language, I’m all for it, but from an explicit static typing viewpoint, I don’t see the benefit.
If you write a method and don’t document what data types the parameters take, I hate you.
And duck typing is basically just a way to skip writing a trait/interface, which means you can’t specify the type, because you don’t have a name for it, which means I hate you.
I mean, the compiler will figure out a type which an IDE could display, but it’ll be a humongous union type and it’ll only contain what data types currently get stuck into there, not what other data types I can stick into it.
Whoa neat, never heard of this. Ruby has my favorite syntax out of any language.
I can’t tell what they mean by “native code” tho, and their website doesn’t say.
It compiles via LLVM to the native assembly language of whatever platform it’s on, like Rust.
