The Antimony Programming Language

Continuous integration docs Chat on Matrix

Antimony is a bullshit-free (©) programming language that gets out of your way. It is meant to "just work", without adding unnecessary and bloated language features.

Why yet another language?

The goal of Antimony is to be a simple language that anyone - beginner and expert - can pick up and use. A "bullshit-free programming language" is of course a highly subjective opinion, and this project is my very own attempt at this. There are plenty of great programming languages out there, and Antimony is not meant to replace any of them. Currently, Antimony is just a general-purpose toy language. Its primary goal is to be simple and easy to understand, not to be efficient.


// examples/fib.sb

fn main() {
    let num = 10

fn fib(n: int): int {
    if n <= 1 {
        return n

    return fib(n-1) + fib(n-2)

// -> 55

State of this project

Most algorithms should run fine, but some features may be unstable. Standard library and documentation are still incomplete. See the open issues for upcoming todos.

The Antimony compiler emits JavaScript for the Node.js runtime, and a C backend is currently under development. Backends for WASM and LLVM are planned.


Documentation is hosted here.
