Love the use of literate programming here. It's a great fit for teaching tough concepts

Yeah. My first reaction was "Oh god", but after reading through the source, it's actually a really great usage of literate coffeescript.

Nice work. Is there a story behind its development?

If it meets the guidelines, this might make a good "Show HN".

I think it meets guidelines. What need to do? Edit this post or create new?

We'll add "Show HN" to the title.

I doubt it's editable, so a new post probably makes sense.

Hacker News post titles are editable by the mods. Which is great!

Was this inspired by the Super Tiny Compiler ;)?


Yes, it was. :)
