A shell 🐚

I think it would be quite fun to make a shell. The syntax would probably be a bit like fish (clean, better than bash). That’s all I’ve really thought about yet. We’ll use GitHub to host the project, maybe using a Gitter room to talk. Anyone? You can even just do a tiny commit if you want :)

    @IllSlapU oh, I definitely agree that C would be better - but, I prefer Go’s higher level features

    I’m actually thinking of getting better at C, so this might be a good way of doing that actually

    How about this: Write a compiler for a language we invent. But that compiler compiles into brainfuck. Now we write a shell in said invented language. Compile. Self written shell in brainfuck.

    @Kimmax also write a compiler for invented language in the same language. Whop. First standalone language bootstraped from brainfuck

    There’s also a gitter room called shell-collab (I think)
