Graphical Janet REPL in Spirit of Self
I have made a graphical REPL for Janet. It works like Self, but programming is much easier than in Self.
Here is a video showing how it works:
Here’s the script of the video.
- show basic values - (range 10) - (map |(* 2 $) _var) - (map |(* 3 $) _) - os access - (os/dir ".") - (filter |(string/has-prefix? "zig" $) _) - (spit "out" (string/format "%j" _))
In case you haven’t figured it out,
_ is the current object/window.
I honestly have no idea what to do with this thing I created. It is very powerful, only less powerful than the POSIX shell. Compared to Python, Janet doesn’t have much libraries. Maybe it’s better if I make it support IPython.
