Babel logoBabel is a general-purpose programming language first released in 2014. It is designed to write programs that are meant to conserve system resources and battery life on target devices. Programs written in Babel are cross-platform, garbage-collected, and can be rapidly prototyped using a built-in REPL (read-evaluate-print loop) debugger.

The syntax of Babel is similar to LISP, but with several key differences. For example, Babel statements are enclosed in parentheses but use postfix notion for operations (the operator appears after the operands).
