  • Dark is a functional programming language, an editor, and an “infrastructure builder.”

  • Dark is centered around a Structural Editor.

  • Optimized for fast deployment. The code is deployed directly on the production server (usually under a feature flag).

  • It uses function/type/database schema versioning, so different versions of a function can work side by side.

  • DB version is paired with rollback/rollforward functions so that both old and new code can work with the schema version.

  • I think with automatic code versioning, managing feature flags should be easy.

  • Dark implicitly unwraps Option/Result types while prototyping (like rust’s old try! or new !).

  • It also versions the Dark itself, so you can migrate your functions one by one when new Dark version is released.
