octopus: A 100-year language inspired by Kernel, JSON, Clojure, Arc and science.

[ gpl, language, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

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 will be the most reasonable.
