Bondrewd is a programming language combining powerful compile-time metaprogramming and optimal runtime performance.

Key Aspects of Bondrewd


Bondrewd's unique approach to compile-time execution allows for incredible flexibility at compile time. The language constructs and the build process can be influenced from within the same code. The Shukufuku model of treating the program as its own compilation script brings Python's levels of expressiveness and dynamicity to compile-time Bondrewd.


Bondrewd is statically typed with no runtime overhead by default. You can expect your Bondrewd programs to be as fast as if they were written in C++ or Rust. At the same time you have fine control over the resulting executable, allowing you to consciously trade performance for other desirable properties.


Bondrewd is made to be internally consistent and predictable. There are minimal special cases and exceptions, even for core language features. This means that the language itself operates by the same principles as the programs written in it, making it easy to reason about reflection and metaprogramming.


Bondrewd is a general-purpose programming language. Its doesn't impose arbitrary limitations, and its flexiblility allows it to be adapted to any specific domain.


Bondrewd doesn't try to reinvent the wheel. It takes inspiration from existing languages, adopting the good ideas and avoiding the bad ones. This, along with its simple and uniform design, makes it easy to learn for anyone with prior programming experience.


Thanks to Bondrewd's compile-time flexibility, targeting different platforms is a library-level task. It is easy to introduce support for an obscure architecture or operating system, and it is even possible to target multiple platforms in different parts of the same program.
