4 Facts about Crystal You Might Haven’t Heard

Since many years ago some developers are working on a new programming language that is going further than any other already made. Faster and easier, ‘Crystal’ is the most expected programming language of this year. In this website, you will have all the updated information you may haven’t heard about it.

Programming Language Is Crucial

First of all, why changing our programming languages being so efficient rather than Ruby, Elixir, Rust, JavaScript, Python, or even Go?

Different from those, Crystal is a compiled language program centered on using the respected LLVM framework and would play against each other with Rust and C/C++ any time they want. Crystal is faster because it doesn’t have semicolons, a great advantage if it is compared with the rest.

Lots Of Features

Moreover, none of those already mentioned programming languages have put these features together: static typing, compile-time macros, Ruby-like syntax, C-like speed, native binary compilation, gem-like package ecosystem, cross-platform support, and fibers.

Crystal Vs Rust

Under this perception, Crystal deserves the same attention as Rust, whose popularity has lately increased and is the closest language to Crystal; In terms of the role, it is meant to fill as a fast ‘C++’ due to its high-level language features and syntax.

It is also important to highlight that Crystal could replace Rust, which isn’t the point of this whole article, and all of these languages programs have earned their places.  I do think that Crystal could be the next Rust in terms of popularity, and I think it deserves the attention.

Another characteristic of this promising programming language is the ‘Static Typing’. Meaning that in Crystal PL every variable has one or more potential types, which needs to be reckoned at light speed and accounted for.

The Program Is A Little Ambiguous

Its compiler is so simple on working that only requires you to be very specific and detailed when it is maybe somewhat ambiguous what it might be, which means that often you won’t have anything to do with types, and you can go ahead like if everything were part of Ruby or Python.

Since its innovating simplicity, it’s expected that the few limitations be very soon eliminated. One of them is that Windows support is not yet completed. Anyway, Crystal now is making its own path in the industry.
