Discussion on: Sadly, I must say goodbye to Leaf (my programming language)

Sorry to hear. On one hand, though, can't you in some sense view the journey as an end in itself? I am also developing a toy language, and I really don't want to expect right now that it will ever gain mainstream success. If it does, that's cool, though. I have found a lot of fulfillment in learning how a compiler works, and I have found that there are a lot of skills in compiler writing that commute to other areas of programming.

Who knows, perhaps you'll continue developing Leaf, even if it's just a much slower development lifecycle.

Yes, the journey has been enjoyable and I learned many things.

I'm glad to hear you're working on a language. They can have lots of fun things to implement and explore.
