About

Inko is a gradually-typed, safe, object-oriented programming language for writing concurrent programs. By using lightweight isolated processes, data race conditions can not occur. The syntax is easy to learn and remember, and thanks to its error handling model you will never have to worry about unexpected runtime errors.

Inko draws inspiration from many other languages, such as: Smalltalk, Self, Ruby, Erlang, and Rust. Some of Inko's features are borrowed from these languages. For example, the concurrency model is heavily inspired by Erlang, and the use of message passing for if and the likes is taken from Smalltalk. 

Inko is free and open source software, licensed under the Mozilla Public License version 2.0. This means you can not only install and use Inko, but you are also free to modify and redistribute it.

The goal of this collective is to cover any hosting feeds (e.g. CI runners), and to (partially) fund development of Inko.
