It's time to do it! We've started work on a new programming language. Its name is EO (as in Elegant Objects or in Esperanto): eolang.org. It's open source and community driven: yegor256/eo GitHub repo. It's still in very early draft form, but the direction is more or less clear: It has to be truly object-oriented, with no compromises. You're welcome to join us.
Why yet another language? Because there are no object-oriented languages on the market that are really object-oriented, to my knowledge. Here are the things I think do not belong in a pure object-oriented language:
- static methods
- classes (only types and objects)
- implementation inheritance
- type casting
- flow control (
And many other minor mistakes that Java and C++ are full of.
At the moment, we think that EO will compile into Java. Not into byte-code,
.java files, later compilable to byte-code.
I really count on your contribution. Please submit your ideas as tickets and pull request to the yegor256/eo GitHub repo.
