The Future of Alore
The most important new language feature that is currently being developed is optional typing. The type system is separate from runtime semantics to retain most of the simplicity, power and convenience of dynamic typing: all code can be run equivalently without static type checking as well. Some new language features will be introduced to support static typing, but without sacrificing the simplicity of the dynamically-typed core Alore.
Several new library modules are being designed, and some of these already have prototype implementations.
Here is a partial list of additional language features and tool support that we are planning to implement at some point:
- optimizing native code compiler for much higher performance (Faster than Java? Maybe.)
- optional strict runtime type checking for dynamic type safety and for catching more runtime type errors
- Alore-Python bridge that allows using Python libraries in Alore programs
- various bits of syntactic sugar (e.g. array comprehensions?)
- IDE support for Alore with code completion, integrated debugging, etc.
- improved web development support
- high-level libraries for easier parallel programming.
