The Crystal Programming Language
Crystal is a programming language with the following goals:
We love Ruby's efficiency for writing code.
We love C's efficiency for running code.
We want the best of both worlds.
We want the compiler to understand what we mean without having to specify types everywhere.
We want full OOP.
Oh, and we don't want to write C code to make the code run faster.
Within a major version language features won't be removed or changed in any way that could prevent an existing code to keep compiling and working. And the built in standard library might be enriched but always with backward compatibility in mind.
Questions or suggestions? Ask on the Crystal Forum, on our Gitter channel or IRC channel #crystal-lang at chat.freenode.net, or on Stack Overflow under the crystal-lang tag. There is also an archived Google Group.
The Crystal repository is hosted at crystal-lang/crystal on GitHub.
