      Nice to see such an approachable website for a research language. The fixpoint stuff looks interesting. At first glance reminds me of prolog (but I’m a total noob and might be very offbase with that comparison).

        The page doesn’t load at all without javascript enabled. If I can’t even view their mostly text homepage without that bloat, I wonder what the language is like…..

        edit: Documentation doesn’t load without it either.

          Too bad the example on their landing page doesn’t work…
