Pyro

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

Version 0.8.89

Roadmap


All the functionality described here in the documentation has been implemented.

The standard library still needs a lot of work before Pyro can be considered a practical programming language. A regex library, a built-in SQLite implementation, and a networking library are currently at the top of the list.

Packaging

Packaging is on the medium-length finger.

I'm planning to add a build command to Pyro which will bundle up a script and all of its dependencies into a zip archive which it will append to a copy of the Pyro binary to create an easily-distributable single-file executable.

'Virtual environments' and friends are a hell which Pyro will attempt to avoid at all costs.

Concurrency

Adding support for concurrency is on the very long finger. I'm waiting until I decide if it's worth investing the significant time and effort needed to do it right.

If I do add suppprt for concurrency, the implementation is likely to be influnced by the Go model.
