Want To Build Your Own Language On LLVM?

I’ve mentioned before about my fascination with Apple’s big bet on LLVM. It’s a nifty technology, well thought out, and puts Apple in a great position to build new developer facing features1. It’s truly a remarkable project.

If you’ve ever wondered how you could harness this power for yourself, wonder no more. You can read up on the official LLVM docs to implement your own language with LLVM. Not a trivial read, but it’s another great window into the direction Apple could be heading.

  1. And hopefully it plays that position well. :)
