A scripting language for people who enjoy the simpler things in life.

Version 0.9.35


What problem does Pyro solve?

It solves the problem that I wanted to build a programming language.

Why is it called Pyro?

I built the first prototype version in Python and it burned through CPU cycles. I think that qualifies as blazingly fast for marketing purposes.

Is Pyro fast?

No. Right now, Pyro is approximately as fast as Python, which is generally considered to be a slow language.

Pyro is designed to be highly optimizable so, in theory, future versions could run at least an order of magnitude faster, but for now this is a theoretical possibility.

Is Pyro embeddable?

Not yet, but once the core language is complete I do intend making it embeddable so it can be used, like Lua, as a scripting language inside a larger application.
