[erlang-questions] [ANN] Elixir v0.5.0 released
Fri May 25 17:57:22 CEST 2012
Today we have officially released Elixir.
Elixir is a programming language built on top of the Erlang. It is
homoiconic, allowing meta-programming via macros, it also supports
polymorphism via protocols (similar to Clojure's), dynamic records and a
module reference mechanism.
Elixir aims to stay compatible with Erlang, so it shares the same bytecode
and data types. This means you can invoke Erlang code from Elixir (and
vice-versa) without any conversion or performance hit. This allows a
developer to mix the expressiveness of Elixir with the robustness and
performance of Erlang.
The getting started guide is here:
We also have a fast crash course for Erlang developers:
