TrumpScript

Making Python great again

Mission

TrumpScript is language based upon the illustrious Donald Trump. As the undeniably best presidential candidate in the 2016 language, we found that the current field of programming languages does not include any that Trump's glorious golden combover would approve of.

TrumpScript is our solution to this. It's the programming language Trump would approve of. Just like he is making America great again, we hope our efforts will make programming great again.

Installation

To use, download the .zip and extract the contents or clone the repository by typing

git clone https://github.com/samshadwell/TrumpScript.git

Add the TrumpScript root directory to your system PATH using one of the two following techniques

  1. Temporary: Write export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/TrumpScript/bin to terminal.
  2. Permanent: Append export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/TrumpScript/bin to the end of your ~/.bashrc file.

Usage

Features

Our language includes several convenient features, perfect for any aspiring Presidential candidate including:

Grammar

The grammar of the language is fairly convoluted, but here's a taste of the enlightened decisions we've made.

Arithmetic operators:

Control flow:

The exciting parts:

But most importantly, Trump doesn't like to talk about his failures. So a lot of the time your code will fail, and it will do so silently. Just think of debugging as a fun little game.
