Lever: Yet Another General Purpose Programming Language
Written by Michael Larabel in Programming on 18 August 2016 at 08:24 AM EDT. 11 Comments
Lever is yet another attempt at being a modern general purpose programming language that fits along the lines of Perl, Python, and Ruby. Lever has support for GUI/OpenGL applications and also aims to make it easy to interface with C libraries.

A developer of the Lever programming language wrote in this morning to share this project. Lever aims to make it easy to interface with C libraries, provides OpenGL 4 support, support for modules, a built-in event loop with augmented concurrency, dynamic typing, partial Vulkan support, and what is described as a completely customizable syntax.

If you are curious about Lever and want to see some code snippets as well, stop by LeverLanguage.com. The implementation of Lever is MIT licensed and available via GitHub. Large amounts of Lever's compiler, libraries, and runtime are written in Python.

Interesting this Lever programming language appears to have been started by the same developer that started the Node.js bindings for Wayland.
