What a delightful coincidence! I just posted the next chapter on my in-progress book "Crafting Interpreters" which walks you through implementing an interpreter (well, two actually) from scratch, a chapter at a time:


I really liked "Build Your Own Lisp" too. Fun book. :)

I can really recommend this book, I've worked through it and am implementing the interpreter in Rust. I've just finished the latest chapter and am looking forward to the future instalments.

Edit: here is the (WIP) intepreter: https://github.com/HarveyHunt/loxr

I'm going through the book implementing the project in Rust too.

I'm trying to learn Rust with this project. It's still far from idiomatic but I plan to keep implementing following the book and then refactor later.


Cool, added yours to the README too. :)

Awesome, I added a link to it on the book's README so other people can find it. I hope that's OK.

That's great, thanks for doing so.

Thank you for the tutorial. I've scoured the Internet for lighter introductions to interpreter development, and yours is the only one that's worthwhile. Great job!
