Hyperlambda, a scripting language for .Net and C#

Imagine if you could dynamically “orchestrate” your C# plugins and libraries together in a dynamic environment. What would this do for you? Kind of like a “FoxPro plugin” for C#? Something that would allow you to keep all the advantages of C#, yet still have a dynamic scripting language at your disposal?

Well, you don’t have to wait. This is the purpose of Hyperlambda. I wrote an article about Hyperlambda in MSDN Magazine last year, and it actually became one of the top 5 most read articles in the Magazine’s history – So obviously this is something C# developers were waiting for.

The thing about Hyperlambda, is that it allows you to dynamically “mold” CLR assemblies, classes, and methods together, by injecting Yet Another Layer Of Abstraction (YALOA) in between your C# code, and the parts that “configures” your apps together. In a way, it allows you to “configure” your apps, with a syntax resembling that of YAML. So you get to keep all the advantages of C#, including those 10,000 + Open Source .Net libraries at GitHub – Yet still having all the advantages of a dynamic environment, such as PHP or JavaScript, allowing you to orchestrate your apps together, in a dynamic “scripting” environment. Hyperlambda is not intended to replace C#, quite the contrary – It lives in symbiosis with C#, although I tend to use some strong superlatives about OOP every now and then … 😉

In fact, Hyperlambda serves as a bridge; A bridge between the client and the server, a bridge between your C# code and your app, and a bridge between a statically compiled programming language (C#), and the dynamic environment of JavaScript. It becomes the equivalent of the “grease in your car engine”, that allows all of your car’s parts to function smoothly, without things getting stuck to each other, destroying your car.

A month from now, I will get the opportunity to illustrate exactly what this can do, and its benefits. Simply because a month from now, I will enter in front of a live audience, and “compete” with a static and traditional programming language called Lily, and such hopefully illustrate just how much of an advantage having a little bit of “grease” in your car’s engine actually can give you.

If you’d like to be notified, feel free to subscribe to my blog. The event will be properly marketed, and I will announce it here on my blog when we have a date – At which point you can see me compete with a “traditional OOP (only) solution”. In this competition, both of us will be given the same specification, and asked to solve it as fast as possible. The winner is the first guy to finish. If you can’t wait another month, please realise that the following web based IDE was exclusively built using Hyperlambda. Not a single line of C# code was written to create it …

Hyper IDE contains 2429 lines of code, it was built in roughly 2-3 months, by one guy (me), and it contains 649 comments. Its initial page load bandwidth consumption is roughly 100Kb, and it loads on my phone. Hyper IDE supports some 100+ programming language, and I will obviously exclusively use Hyper IDE in the competition, if I can …

I wish my opponent good luck, and may the best man win … 😉
