Python-Compiler and API for the Para language

Project description

paralang_base - The Python Module for the Para Compiler

License Lines of Code Py Versions Documentation Status

Introduction to paralang_base (as Python Module)

The para module serves the purpose of combining the entire compiler with lib into a simple module, which can be imported and used in ways that are not implemented in the standard CLI. This means both the preprocessor and compiler are available for customisable usage.


python3 -m pip install -U paralang_base

With specific version:

python3 -m pip install -U paralang_base==version

Para Language

Para (From Greek "para": Beside/Alongside) is a programming language that is designed to integrate other languages and allow for advanced management of embedded programs / code-bases inside a program, where the language will serve as a base for writing overhead and "connector" programs, which can manage instances, listen for events, stop and start processes and manage in- and out-data.

Runtime Info

There are two different usage (run) options where the compiler can be used:

  • Python module, which is either the source code execution or usage of the imported module
  • Compiled distribution, which is the compiled version of Para, which included the CLI. Due to the difference in implementation, only this version can be configured, since the python module is intended for customised behaviour, meaning the pre-configured runtime options are not available.

To differentiate between the two runtime modes, there are constant variables that are set during initialisation:

  • DIST_COMPILED_VERSION: bool - If True it's the distribution version, aka. called using the compiled binaries
  • MODULE_VERSION: bool - If True it's the module version

Para CLI - paralang_cli

The CLI itself is an extension to the base module, as it provides extended graphical logging and configuration options from the console. It includes the base Para compiler module, and extends its functionality and provides scripts that are added automatically to the path on installation.

This means after installation of paralang_cli, you can use the Para compiler directly with a CLI (command line interface).

To show the current Para installation version, you can use the following:

para --version

The PyPi release of the CLI can be found here.

Contributing and Development

Due to active and early development not available. (Can be expected with later versions, such as v0.1 or v0.2)

Reason for that is the there is not yet a lot that can be contributed to, since the project is in early build up. This means contributions are going to be limited until the basic structure is finished.
