Mech is a language for developing data-driven, reactive systems like animations, games, and robots. It makes composing, transforming, and distributing data easy, allowing you to focus on the essential complexity of your problem.
You can try Mech online at try.mech-lang.org.
This repository serves as a table of contents for the constellation of tools and utilities that comprise the Mech programming language:
- Core - The language runtime. It's a small dataflow engine that accepts transactions of changes, and applies them to a compute network.
- Syntax - A compiler for a textual Mech syntax.
- Program - Coordinates distributed Mech cores as a coherent program.
You can download the the latest release for your platform here. Or, if you have Rust's Cargo tool installed you can use the following command:
> cargo install mech
You will need to install Rust (Mech only works on the "Nightly" release channel) before building Mech. When those are installed, follow these instructions:
> git clone https://gitlab.com/mech-lang/mech > cd mech > cargo build --bin mech --release
Mech is currently in the v0.0.5 alpha stage of development. This means that while some features work and are tested, programs are still likely to crash and produce incorrect results. We've implemented some language features, but many are not yet implemented.
Feel free to use the language for your own satisfaction, but please don't use it for anything important.
