I posted a month ago, a blog post about Repl.it Lang Jam, and we created a team there https://repl.it/@tinylang.
In Tiny lang, we accept that other developers edit basic info from the language, like the regex to match
Right now, we have three versions of the language
We are accepting pull requests to support new spoken languages. You can submit on GitHub, and I will build it to run in Repl.it.
How to teach using repl.it
In the past, I taught programming to Brazilian children in Portuguese. At the time, I had to compile the lang in several computers and make sure that everything is okay before starting the class. It was five years ago, and we did not have Repl.it. Now it is much more accessible, with few clicks, anyone in the world without computer science knowledge can start writing the first lines of code in the primary language. This is what we are doing — enabling that people that do not know English learn how to do the first steps with programming.
Writing the first lines in PT-BR.
Create an account on Repl.it.
main.tl to become your program
tokens/portugues.yml to improve the language
You can copy and paste the following inside the
main.tl to build your first control flow
imprimir "Qual a raiz quadrada de 16? "; lerLinha associar numero resposta; caso(resposta == 4) imprimir "Certa Resposta"; fim imprimir "O programa chegou ao fim";
It’s your turn. Have fun.
