The open source language that compiles into HTML to provide easy syntax for beautiful webpages. Perfect for first-time contributors and experts
The open source markup language that complies into HTML at runtime, providing beautiful, easy syntax to create webpages.
Our mission, as the creators of LineScript, is to help beginners make their first contribution to open source through clear-cut contribution guides, a welcoming community, and open codebase.
It is specifically why we created the language: as a learning experience. It can be hard to start open source. There are millions of developers, millions of repositories, and incalculable lines of code written in dozens of languages. As a beginner, very little of how Git and open source work is known, and the majority of the code is far above the level of a someone just starting out. We know from experience that it is extremely challenging to start off in this world, and we want to make the experience of every new developer as easy as we can.
However, their goal is not to “create a better web”, or “design a new way to code”, as many new languages claim. It is much simpler, but so much bigger at the same time. LineScript’s goal is to help beginners make their first open source contribution. Their repository was specifically designed to be beginner friendly, and provides crystal-clear contribution guides to help beginners put their foot in the right direction.
So, maybe their mission is to “create a better web”, but the way to the goal is certainly much more thoughtful and practical.
