JSON and YAML work great for passing data between languages.
However, sometimes, I have a pure function like y = mx + b, that I would like to pass between languages (for making plots).
What operators should be available? I think jsonnet’s standard library(skip to the math operators) is the perfect example of a useful set of operations that could be shared across basically all programming languages. The operations would take/return json values rather than working with language-specific data types.
My question is does such a language exist already?
- Dhall and jsonnet are pure languages that generate json. But AFAIK they can’t actually serialize pure functions. They can only use pure functions as a shorthand for generating json. I want to actually save/send functions over the wire.
