It would be really nice if you could make a video of how to set up everything.

For example there is:

run vcvarsall.bat to setup the path

It is that I follow handmade hero that I know about that.
When it comes to C, C++, Objective C, java, python, javascript etc. It is really easy to compile/run.
For Odin, I have really no clue what to do.

I may write a little tutorial instead of a video. The reasoning behind this bizzare comment is that the compiler currently doesn't have it's own linker packaged with it and I'm leveraging MSVC's link.exe. This means that it requires having the path setup correctly.

Eventually, the compiler should have its own linker (and even backend) which eventually means you just have to have the executable and the "core" to get started.

It'll be brill if one was written up; Documentation would be awesome too at some point. It'll help build the community and support new users.

The tutorial would still be very welcome. Every programming language is driving me crazy in someway.

I am currently working on a "book": Odin by Example. And I'm working on a website to introduce the language with examples and information.

This will be released when it is done but I have no ETA for that.

Will this be something like a git book one can read as it's written or maybe contribute to? :)

It is a git book, Thor Odinson. To see a sneak peek of the book you can do so here: https://gingerbill.gitbooks.io/odin-by-example/content/

It is by no means finished nor is that layout and order finalized. This "book" will take some time to write.

... Thor Odinson...


I love the Norse Mythology word play.

The meaning of life is to dance and sing while the music is being played.

vectors like [vector 4]f32


Does this signify a vector of 4 float components, or 4 vectors (the specific 'vector' being previous defined somewhere else) of float components?

SIMD vector with 4 float components I believe.
