Halunke Save Abandoned

A dynamic OO language with ideas traditionally described as "functional"

Project README


Halunke has moved to Codeberg. This page is an archive.


Halunke is a dynamic, object-oriented language that has a simple grammar inspired by Smalltalk and Lisp. It is created to show that interesting characteristics traditionally described as "functional" make sense in an object-oriented language:

  • Separation of identity and data (but not data and behavior)
  • Immutability and persistent data structures
  • Isolation of Side-Effects
  • Pattern matching

It also has the following characteristics:

  • There is no null/nil value in the language
  • Playing close attention to error message design

The project is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
