Tortuga is a functionally-oriented concurrent programming language. The runtime is a Rust program to provide performance and memory safety; the language compiles to WebAssembly. Using WebAssembly allows developers to utilize their favorite programming language to write actors for the runtime. Targeting WebAssembly as the compilation architecture allows us to test the runtime itself without a dependency on the programming language, so the two can be developed independently.
For design goals, non-goals, grammar, and more see the Tortuga Programming Language Book.
To test the command-line interface, instal the crate locally from the root of the repository with:
cargo install --path ./
To run the unit and documentation tests, use:
While the system sends all numbers in network byte order (i.e., big endian), WebAssembly uses little-endian for its numbers. Therefore, the system will handle mapping the integers between the types of endianness. See https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-newman-network-byte-order-01
More concrete examples are pending finalizing the grammar. However, some basic examples can be found in the /examples directory.
Tortuga adheres to Semantic Versioning. You can use
tortuga version or
tortuga -V to determine the version of a Tortuga installation.
