Elixir

Elixir

Elixir is a functional, concurrent, general-purpose, open source meta-programming aware language built on top of the Erlang Virtual Machine (BEAM). It mostly imports Erlang's syntax.

Elixir is a dynamic language with macros that leverages Erlang's ability to build concurrent, distributed, and fault-tolerant applications with hot code upgrades. It combines the robust functional programming of Erlang with an approach that looks more like Ruby.

Elixir provides a first class macro mechanism, supports polymorphism via protocols (similar to Clojure's) and many other features while keeping the functional aspects of Erlang.
