Key Features of Wren


Wren

Familiar

Wren uses a familiar, modern syntax familiar to many coming from JS or another C-like language.

Small

Wren's VM implementation is under 4,000 semicolons of readable and lovingly commented C code.

Fast

A single-pass compiler, tight byte-code, and compact objects keeps Wren fast on it's feet.

Concurrent

Lightweight fibers let you organize your program into a flock of communicating coroutines.

Embeddable

Easily embedded, no dependencies, a small standard lib, and easy-to-use C API.

Class-based

Many scripting languages lack (or have unusual) object models. Wren places classes front and center.

Get mentored the Wren way

Every language has its own way of doing things. Wren is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a Wren developer and how to write idiomatic code in Wren. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in Wren - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
