Create your own programming language with Rust

Github Pages CI

This repository contains the codes and the contents for createlang.rs

Why am I writing this book?

The book arises from my frustration of not finding modern, clear and concise teaching materials that are readily accessible to beginners like me who wants to learn a bit on how to create their own programming language.

The following are my guidelines

"If you don't know how compilers work, then you don't know how computers work" 1

"If you can’t explain something in simple terms, you don’t understand it" 2

Requirements

Make sure you have

  1. Rust toolchain installed
  2. Cloned this repository (follow the instructions in each chapter)
  3. LLVM installed to run and test locally cargo test --tests
    • Easiest option is LLVM v10.0 (Debian/Ubuntu or macOS)
    • Otherwise, in Cargo.toml you'd need to change the inkwell = { ..., branch = "your-llvm-version" } with LLVM version on your system (output of llvm-config --version)

To build the book locally, navigate to the book subdirectory and follow the instructions in mdbook.
