http://eve-lang.com/ Not quite the point of the language, but it is funny that it uses D's old "compilable HTML" And from what I saw in their introduction page, the language wasn't really that simple either. I like declarative programing, but I just wasn't feeling the connection between the declarations. Maybe it is because I know what a browser has to do, but I don't see how binding a DIV to a browser makes anything happen. I also don't know what I'm suppose to expect to happen. And they still didn't eliminate the need to understand working with a browser, DIV, what is that, why am I using it in my programming language.

As Walter once said: I've been around long enough to have seen an endless parade of magic new techniques du jour, most of which purport to remove the necessity of thought about your programming problem. In the end they wind up contributing one or two pieces to the collective wisdom, and fade away in the rearview mirror. -- Walter Bright T -- "The number you have dialed is imaginary. Please rotate your phone 90 degrees and try again."
