The Roof programming language is now open source. Co-developer Kasper Lund announced this in a blog post. Roof was designed specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT) and, according to the developers, is expected to run code on ESP32 microcontrollers about 30 times faster than MicroPython. The language is similar to Python in its syntax.
Even at the start of Toit’s development, it was clear that one day the programming language would be released as open source, they say in the blog post. After all, all major and widely used programming languages are open source. Nevertheless, they wanted to make sure that the language was stable and therefore first worked closely with the paying customers on the Roof-Plattform.
The people behind Toit are well known
But now we are ready to open the language: Up Github, the developers have provided the implementation of the language, including the compiler, the virtual machine and the standard libraries. A quick start guide on the side of the project helps in learning the language.
