Open Dylan

Dylan is an object-functional language originally created by Apple for the Newton. Dylan is a direct descendant of Scheme and CLOS (without the Lisp syntax) with a programming model designed to support efficient machine code generation, including fine-grained control over dynamic and static behaviors.

New to Dylan? We recommend starting with the Tour of Dylan, a quick (30 minute) overview of the language, and/or stop by and ask questions on Matrix.

If you want to play around without having to install anything, try out the Playground. It has a fixed set of imports so you don’t have to worry about how to define libraries and modules right away.

Then move on to one of these in-depth guides:

The Dylan Reference Manual, besides being the official language definition, has an excellent, very brief introduction describing the language background and goals.

Or explore all the docs, including cheat sheets, articles, and all the library docs.
