#ruse scheme

Experimental Scheme to JavaScript compiler

a fox

#Abstract

ruse will be a pragmatic language and a standard library for the browser.

ruse will integrate well with JavaScript ecosystem in the sense that it will be easy to use existing JavaScript libraries. Eventually, it will support R7RS and all its libraries.

ruse wants to be a good enough framework for building frontend web applications.

#Rationale

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."

Confucius

The project was started because there is (was?) not existing Scheme implementation that supported tail-call-optimization in the browser that is (was?) actually working.

ruse is not only a learning project about Scheme programming language but also an exercices about compilers.
