Welcome to Scopes

Scopes is a retargetable programming language & infrastructure.

  • Current Release: 0.14
  • Previous Release: 0.13

See Downloads for older releases.

Features

  • A performant systems programming language that feels like a scripting language.
  • Combines the expressivity of Scheme with the convenience of Python, Lua or Javascript and the performance of C.
  • Compile-time resource management using view propagation, an annotation-free variation of borrow checking.
  • A single codebase targets native 64-bit Linux, Windows and macOS as well as SPIR-V and GLSL shaders. Your math functions run on CPU and GPU without modification.
  • Fully interoperable with C libraries. Import and use C include files directly.
  • Support for live code execution as well as offline compilation of object files.
  • Statically typed but fully inferred type system via forward propagation. Supports closures as zero-cost abstraction.
  • Open Source MIT licensed.
  • Built with LLVM and clang for multi-stage programming features and overhead-free interoperability with C libraries.
  • Visual Studio Code extension available.
