# Schala - a programming language meta-interpreter
Schala is a Rust framework written to make it easy to create and experiment
with multipl toy programming languages. It provides a cross-language REPL and
with multiple toy programming languages. It provides a cross-language REPL and
provisions for tokenizing text, parsing tokens, evaluating an abstract syntax
tree, and other tasks that are common to all programming languages, as well as sharing state
between multiple programming languages.
tree, and other tasks that are common to all programming languages, as well as
sharing state between multiple programming languages.
Schala is implemented as a Rust library `schala-repl`, which provides a
function `start_repl`, meant to be used as entry point into a common REPL or
non-interactive environment. Clients are expected to invoke `start_repl` with a
vector of programming languages. Individual programming language
implementations are Rust types that implement the
`ProgrammingLanguageInterface` trait and store whatever persistent state is
relevant to that language.

Run schala with: `cargo run`. This will drop you into a REPL environment. Type
`:help` for more information, or type in text in any supported programming
language (currently only schala-lang) to evaluate it in the REPL.
