Getting Started #

There are several ways to get Spry running, and there are several ways to use and run Spry.

REPL #

Absolutely most trivial way is to use the REPL web page here in this site. That's an actual Spry interpreter compiled to javascript. But this is just a toy.

Windows #

Windows is a ... messy platform. On Linux or OSX it's very easy to build Spry yourself (see below) but on Windows it's a bit more complicated. I have put together a trivial zip file with binaries if you just want to try it out:

Just download and unzip somewhere and double click on ispry.exe to get into the REPL VM. Or pull up a command prompt, cd into this directory and run spry.exe together with a script, for example like this:

spry hello.sy

The included files with the sy-extension are just plain text files you can edit and run this way.

Linux and OSX #

Se below! :)

Building yourself #

If you want to start fiddling more seriously with Spry you would want to clone it from github and build it yourself. It's quite easy, just follow the instructions on github.
