Hey HN, author here.
My side project ( https://letlang.dev - a programming language targeting Rust) is making progress.
I'm proud to show you the first compiled Letlang module :)
It's not much, it's not even useful yet, but it proves that the runtime works as intended, and that the compiler is able to generate valid Rust code.
Now that the hardest part is done, all that remains is implementing all the features of the language, finish redacting the specification, and make some programs!
Still a huge amount of work yes, but baby steps! I'll probably open-source the code next week or so.
