octopus: Lisp with more dynamism, more power, more simplicity.
Octopus is a highly dynamic programming language with an astounding (I think)
power-to-weight ratio (expressivity-to-complexity). With just a handful of
simple primitives, Octopus provides a complete programming environment. Its
main focus is on complete programmer control, not on performance or static
analysis. While the user can shoot themselves, the most natural methods should
be the most reasonable.
Octopus' is most useful for well-contained problems, for teaching, as a
(possibly embedded) scripting language, anywhere boilerplate is a serious issue,
for problems involving higher math, and for brain-stretching.
Octopus is currently in the
useable stage of development, in the same way
food might be food might be
edible instead of
tasty. We are under active
development, working towards
