# Snaptext

Snaptext is a programming language like Snap! but in text.
In Snaptext, everything is a block.
Binary operators and assignments are blocks.
Even the syntax to define a block is a block.

Every block can take inputs, which are in the form of:
:identifier: => identifier
[] => literal/evaluated expression
() => unevaluated expression
{} => unevaluated code block
<> => unevaluated boolean expression
Comments start with #.
The implementation of his language will be done in C++.
Edit: I'm thinking about reviving this, but I'll probably prototype it first in JS

can you give us a link to it?

There's no github repo or website as of now, but I may add that later.

ok

couldn't it be done in JS?

Great!I'm already devoloped DPLA (simplyfing it by only using functions and cheat (use native eval() for expresions (oh(noes(parens(again(:()))))))

Interpreted languages are better developed in compiled languages.

No need, I've already implemented it. https://github.com/DPLA-S/DPLA

Bc it is fast?

I know

Yes.

These are the same!((foo)>) is the same as({report foo}>)!

But why do we have to do it in c++?Python (http://www.pyinstaller.org/) will be good too.

PyInstaller simply bundles your code with the Python interpreter, it's the same thing just bundled in an standalone executable.
