Nick Papoulias is creating a Language-Design Platform

The Lan.d.s platform is a new solution for language design:

https://npapoylias.gitlab.io/lands-project/

From general purpose languages like Lise (short for (list (embedding)) to Domain-Specific Languages using the MOODs framework, and everything else in between.

You can download the alpha version of the platform, here.

In the meantime take a closer look at the Lan.d.s announcement videos for more details and examples. I have set-up this crowd-funding campaign to support a stable release and the authoring of a book around Lan.d.s. You can pledge your support either through patreon or paypal and finance the first 6 chapters monthly or as they become available to you. All additional chapters or lecture materials that I will record will be available for FREE to all subscribers. Here is a break-down of the different Tiers for individuals, institutions and coorporations:



We are going to cover MOGs, Gray, ASL and GrammarTraits in great detail inside the book. We will also build together line by line at least 6 languages, ranging from prototype-based and class-based OO languages and extensions, to Domain-specific, functional and multi-paradigm systems like Lise.

Tiers begin at 5 euros per chapter for e-books in all formats including the interactive TOC-Boards that are developed within the platform. Total pledges in this tier will not surpass 30 euros in total since everything after the first 6 chapters will be free for all supporters.

The printed/ebook combo comes in 10 euros per chapter, which I will distribute through blurb.com. Again here total pledges cannot surpass 60 euros, since everything after the first 6 chapters will be free.

For all interested academic, research or other institutions the eBook will be distributed for free, as well as the inclusion to the Lands research network, with the possibility of an on-site lecture (if you can cover travel expenses). But !! If you do have funding to support the project, consider joining at 100 euros / chapter (which will not surpass 600 euros of total support).

Finally, if you and your company are making a living through parsing technologies (or you imagine doing so in the future) Lan.d.s will be an excellent R&D investement for you ! Your pledge can give you 6 to 12 days of consultancy (in total) for any parsing project you might have, an on-site 1-day workshop, plus networking and sponsoring logos on the Lands portal.

For any additional crazy specialized support you might need (like porting / embedding re-licensing etc) contact me directly at: [email protected] and we may find a way to make it happen.

I am Dr. N. Papoulias, my main area of expertise is Programming Languages & Tools: 

https://parsenet.info/

I have been experimenting with different aspects of the programming cycle, with a primary focus on parsing, reflection, debugging, simulation and modeling. I am currently investigating the design and use of domain-specific and general purpose languages for interdisciplinary research.

Through this page you can support the Lan.d.s Platform:

and my upcoming book:

"Theory and Applications of Multi-Ordered Grammars"
