    OP / language author here! Ink isn’t really anywhere near in a shape for any kind of “public” or “production” use. It was a toy programming language I built to (1) learn how interpreters worked and (2) build some side projects of mine, back in 2019. Since then it’s grown steadily to allow me to build more complex full-stack apps, like Monocle [0]. But the truth is many parts of the language are still rough and mostly meant for personal use, which is what I’ve been using it for – toy language for building small apps for myself! Ink has a pretty significant (one-person) ecosystem, with multiple implementations of the interpreter, a compiler to JS, a syntax highlighter, a code formatter, and other similar tools.

    If you’re curious about the personal history of the project, Ink was the subject of a recent talk I gave at GopherCon EU[1]
