function main = |args| {

Golo documentation across releases.

We invite you to read the development version of the Golo Programming Language Guide.

You can also have a look at our publications, including papers and talks.

Oh, and we have javadocs and golodocs, too.



Golo is a simple dynamic, weakly-typed language that favours explicit over implicit. You should become a Golo programmer within hours, not days.


Built from day 1 with invokedynamic, Golo takes advantage of the latest advances of the JVM. It is also a showcase on how to build a language runtime with invokedynamic.


While we have great plans for Golo in our research projects, we also think that it can be useful for the larger Java community.
