Citrine Language Combines Elements of PHP, Smalltalk, JavaScript, C

  • By Developer.com Staff

A developer named Gabor de Mooij has released a new open source, object-oriented programming language called Citrine. Designed to be easy to learn, Citrine combines elements of several other languages. "With Citrine, I hope to bring the beauty of Smalltalk to wider audience, while adding some nice features from other languages as well: prototypes from Self (and JavaScript), pipelines from Unix, curly braces from C, and template syntax from PHP," said de Mooij. "I just took the ingredients I liked most from the programming languages I work with and combined them."

Citrine is available under a BSD license, and de Mooij expects to have a 0.9 or 1.0 release available before the end of 2016. More information is available on the Citrine website.
