I'm calling it Bagel, and it's still in a stage where everything's changing, but I wanted to put the motivating ideas into words, to organize my thoughts and maybe get a little feedback.
Over the years I've developed lots of ideas and opinions - some specific to web dev, and some not - and as those tend to do, they've solidified into a language that's taken up residence in my head. At the very least it will be an interesting way to explore them and see what happens when they're taken further than usual; if I'm lucky it might even be useful to somebody one day.
I'm going to prioritize a first-class, batteries-included reactive web GUI experience similar in scope to what Elm or Imba offers, but I also want Bagel to be useful as a general-purpose language for writing server-side code, games, etc. I hope its compiler will one day be self-hosted. There will definitely be an opinionated all-in-one compiler/package manager/etc tool, and one or two editor extensions offering syntax highlighting. I'd like to do an LSP down the line too, but that will likely be pretty far away.
