A programming language designed to minimize as much of the programmer experience as possible.
As this is a new project, we're just getting things started. Feel free to poke around and learn more!
Visit DownloadKite and download the latest version for your platform (for the time being, it's only available in source form).
Install any prerequisites that don't already exist on your system. For more information, visit KitePrerequisites.
Untar the tarball on your local system. For Unix platforms, run:
tar xvzf kite-version.tar.gz
where version is the latest version.
There should be a folder with the same name as the tarball (but without the .tar.gz). cd into it and edit Makefile with your favorite editor. In particular, edit the following to match your system:
CPP = g
ANTLR = /sw/bin/antlr
INCLUDES = -I/sw/include
LIBS = -L/sw/lib
INSTALLTO = /sw/bin
INCLUDES and LIBS usually correspond to where the ANTLR include files and libraries are located, respectively. Mac OSX (using Fink) installs ANTLR under /sw, while FreeBSD and most other Unix distributions use /usr/local or similar. INSTALLTO is the folder to install the Kite binary into, usually /usr/local/bin.
If the previous step didn't produce any errors, make install.
