Language with Ruby-like syntax and static type checking
Crystal is a programming language with the following goals
- Have a syntax similar to Ruby but compatibility with it is not a goal
- Be statically type-checked, but without having to specify the type of variables or method arguments.
- Be able to call C code by writing bindings to it in Crystal.
- Have compile-time evaluation and generation of code, to avoid boilerplate code.
- Compile to efficient native code.
