the LDPL programming language
Expressive, readable, portable, fast and easy to learn
Hi there! Welcome to the LDPL Programming Language website.
LDPL is a powerful, C++ transpiled, open-source programming language designed from the ground up to be excessively expressive, readable, fast and easy to learn. It mimics plain English, in the likeness of older programming languages like COBOL, with the desire that it can be understood by anybody. It's very portable and runs on a plethora of different architectures and operating systems including AMD-64 Linux and macOS, ARMv8 Linux, Android and both Intel and PowerPC OS X (tested from Tiger 10.4 onwards). It even supports UTF-8 out of the box.
A number of editors including Visual Studio Code, Vim, Atom and Nano have LDPL highlighting and formatting extensions avaiable for them. Read more here.
There's also LDPL merchandise available, due to popular request! We've paired with TeePublic to bring you everything from shirts, to mousepads, to coffee mugs. All money made from selling these goodies goes to funding the language, paying for the server that keeps this website online, etc.
