Aleb or Qaleb is a new the programming language that uses Arabic script for its source code developed by computer scientist Ramsey Nassr during his fellowship at Eyebeam.

The language is called قلب – roughly pronounced “alb,” after the Arabic word for “heart” – and as Nasser explained to AnimalNewYork, he developed it as much for its aesthetic appeal as for its effectiveness at computation.

The language is very new and is growing quickly. قلب has a functioning JavaScript interpreter that you can play with or contribute to.


Qaleb is not the first Arabic programing language there is Kalimat reviewed at AC here.
