Uiua (wee-wuh) is a general purpose, stack-based, array-oriented programming language with a focus on simplicity, beauty, and tacit code.

Uiua has a simple, context-free, LL(3) grammar. Code runs from right to left, top to bottom, with only one precedence rule. As operators are to the left of their operands, Uiua code reads a little bit like a Lisp, but with fewer parentheses.

Uiua combines the stack-based and array-oriented paradigms in a single language. Combining these already terse paradigms results in code with a very high information density and little syntactic noise.

Uiua's one and only composite data type, the array, is based on those of APL, J, and BQN. They are multidimensional and rank-polymorphic, meaning that an operation that applies to one item also applies to many items.

Unlike other array languages, Uiua does not have monadic and dyadic versions of each glyph. Every glyph does only one thing, so you don't need to parse an entire expression to know which version it is.
