Idris is a general purpose language with full dependent types. It is compiled, with eager evaluation. Dependent types allow types to be predicated on values, meaning that some aspects of a program's behavior can be specified precisely in the type. The language is closely related to Epigram and Agda. There is a tutorial at <>. Features include: * Full dependent types with dependent pattern matching * where clauses, with rule, simple case expressions, pattern matching let and lambda bindings * Type classes, monad comprehensions * do notation, idiom brackets, syntactic conveniences for lists, tuples, dependent pairs * Totality checking * Coinductive types * Indentation significant syntax, extensible syntax * Tactic based theorem proving (influenced by Coq) * Cumulative universes * Simple foreign function interface (to C) * Hugs style interactive environment.
