Overview

␀form

␀form – or NULform if your font is lacking – is an experimental IRC bot written in Elixir, a language built on top of Erlang. The bot is only a secondary result of my effort to try to learn a new language and new programming paradigms.

At this stage (and probably forever), ␀form is not even alpha quality and even releases in the supposedly stable branches can contain errors and may not even compile.

Goals for ␀form

  • Functional-ish design
  • Distributed, with tasks not blocking others from completion
  • Performant and able to scale to many networks and users
  • Live code reloading without restarting processes
