Applications developed in little hours

Ring is a new programming language that focuses on the Natural Language Programming and Declarative Programming paradigms and will let you think different about programming and how to solve your problems in a better way. It’s just released in 2016.01.25! In little days we got thousands of downloads and many developers started learning and using the language. Their feedback are the secret behind the language progress and success. They said that Ring is powerful, beautiful and easy to learn, Some of them provided good examples about what can be done using Ring in little hours. They are very happy with the language productivity.

“I am too lazy to open comment window and write message. But in your case I must say “Perfect” Really, create new remarkable language like your Ring is really perfect job. Even create editor for your language in your language with only few rows... Even noticed in !

I read your previous articles and I tried these examples a few days ago and I will continue. I love Ring.

P.S.: Anders Hejlsberg, Niklaus Wirth, Bjarne Stroustrup, Ada Lovelace Hall of fame is waiting....”

, Martin Nedopil (Czech Republic )

Continue your fantastic job and congratulations.”
, Jose Le Roux (France)
“There are 3 different styles, it looks like Python and C”
, 64remy

“I was taking a tour around Rosettacode and have found Ring. I like the syntax a lot. It’s clean and easy to understand. It looks like a very clean BASIC dialect without sigils. I can say that this is the easiest and the most BASIC-like language I’ve ever tried.”

, Tomaaz

curly-brackets such that each word calls a function. Which could be interesting (A syntax like that would be nice for declaring text styles)”

, LaurieCheers
“If you browse around you see they have listed 160 contributors.

This year they have entered Top 100 in the TIOBE index. Lot of effort seem to have been made to make this language pop out and catch the attention of masses.”

it’s an impressive creation, and a lot of skill went into it”
, Garry Taylor
“Very innovative language! Syntactically clean”
, CodeProject Member

“The author must be commended for the readily-obvious hard work and effort that has gone into creating a rich ecosystem for his language. It seems that the language is quite extensive as well. I would find it useful to see a BNF grammar and concise coverage of its semantics.”

, Xx-Leninist-1917-Xx (Reddit)
“I can see the AI of the future using this technology to solve computational problems for..... the humans.”
, Cryptonite (United States)

“I was recently considering designing my own dynamically-typed, prototypical language and then developing a means to compile it into C/C++. However, last night I was surfing the web and noticed a little-known language called “Ring” which you’ve recently created. I began reading the Motivation section in Wikibooks to see why the language was designed and implemented, and I was shocked to see that someone else had created a language with the same intention and need as myself. I mean, it’s mind-blowing that someone would have addressed every issue I have with the currently accepted languages. Why bother with C/C++ when the syntax can be cryptic and they are largely antiquated - why should we still be dealing with header files, etc? Moreover, your comments on Java and C# being too verbose and forcing OOP onto the user is spot on as well - yet these languages are still primarily used by millions of programmers for the most mundane tasks. At this point, I’m led to believe that it’s simply a matter of legacy applications that still haven’t made the transition, as well as the ever-popular “Appeal to Popularity” fallacy shared by many in academia and enterprise. Then we come to languages, that are easier and much more modern, and yet even now, are being to show their age. Languages like Python which stresses whitespace and indentation, as well as (just like the formerly mentioned languages) irrelevant tokens for the conditional statements. Granted, it’s not as bad as tracking down various curly braces or semi-colons, but one misstep in indentation might as well be as frustrating to track down. The same could be true of Ruby, except with Ruby, we have even odder conventions embedded into the design of the language, which I don’t feel the need to address and moreover, we’re left with something like Lua which is missing a great many features that the previously mentioned languages include. There are many more languages and faults with them, we could claim that PHP is nothing more than a glue for web pages and backends but with so many frameworks available now, it’s falling by the wayside fast. Javascript is constantly being cloned. So, each of these general purpose languages, which we all know are mostly domain-specific and in some cases, also oriented at certain OS(C# was before 2016 and Obj-C/Swift will likely always be primarily for MacOS apps). So, then we’re left with several additional options, involving everything from hybrids to other imperative-based languages like D, GoLang, Scala, Julia, etc. But finally, there’s a new language called Ring - and yes, it may just end up ruling them all. It’s the unicorn we’ve finally been waiting to arrive, that can handle multiple domains, tasks, and paradigms. I honestly can’t wait to jump in and when I do I probably won’t come back up anytime soon. My only apprehension is that the language may not include a library or primitive functions for math as Python and Julia do. Aside from that, if so, hopefully, I won’t be having to use linear expressions as arrays (considering how intellectually lazy it is to do) and that there will be more support/tools as the community continues to grow. It’s crazy to think it’s only been around for a year and yet, it’s already, practically a batteries-included language.”

Google API Shortener Application

Author : John Storm (SienSystem)

Hi everyone,

Wanted to (finally) share a first release version of a small but very nice tool to shorten urls using the Google shortener API. The code is fully documented, maybe too documented, but, provides a good reference as to what is going on.

You can obtain your own API key, or you can use my key to test and use the tool.

Hope you enjoy the application. Please feel free to test at your convenience.

Ring is FUN!!

The language comes with better support for Natural Language Programming and Declarative Programming. The innovation comes in supporting these paradigms with new practical techniques on the top of Object-Oriented Programming and Functional Programming. No need to know anything about (Compilers and Parsing). You get the language constructs ready for use to create domain-specific languages in a fraction of time.

  • Natural Language Programming :

  • The Declarative Approach :

  • Syntax Flexibility :

  • The Ring Programming Language :

NLP in Ring


Many of the Ring libraries (StdLib, WebLib, Natural Library, Games Engine, etc.) and the Ring IDE (Ring Notepad, Form Designer, etc.) are written in the Ring language itself. Ring is ready for use in production and increase the developers productivity.

Check the Form Designer source code :

We can run the Form Designer as Android application!
