Nondescript is a toy programming language. Some of its features are:

  • Dynamic typing, bytecode interpreter
  • Almost everything is an expression
  • New, rewritten 2 pass compiler (parsing, emitting)

See docs/ to learn more about the language.

If that document is not enough, the following folders in the source tree, will have more examples:

  • benchmarks/
  • examples/
  • tests/



  • nim (1.6.10 tested) and nimble (recommended way to install is choosenim)

git clone
cd nondescript
nimble build
