I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Your Help Needed
If you know Mirah, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Mirah.

Mirah is a new way of looking at JVM languages. In attempting to build a replacement for Java, we have followed a few guiding principals:

  • No runtime library

Mirah does not impose any jar files upon you. YOU decide what your application's dependencies should be.

  • Clean, simple syntax

We have borrowed heavily from Ruby, but added static typing and minor syntax changes to support the JVM's type system. The result is pleasing to the eye, but as powerful as Java.

Mirah supports various mechanisms for compile-time metaprogramming and macros. Much of the "open class" feel of dynamic languages is possible in Mirah.

  • No performance penalty

Because Mirah directly targets the JVM's type system and JVM bytecode, it performs exactly as well as Java.
