Submission + - Developing an HTML5 Tetris game (mattgu.com)

koper writes: "The Opa Developer Challenge just finished and the presentation of the winning apps starts today with the honorary mention of an HTML5-powered game of OpaTetris.
Opa is a new web programming language that distinguishes itself from the crowd by bringing static strong typing to the world of the web. It also produces, from a single source: all database queries, native server side code and client side Javascript and automates communication between the two."

Well, you may not care, but obviously some people do. Also if you rant something at least you could get your facts straight; the platform is not closed (it's open source) and it's not pay-only (the AGPL licence is free and so is the proprietary one for small and medium companies, see here and here)

Submission + - Web apps programming made easy. (opalang.org)

koper writes: "The new programming language Opa makes web programming easier by providing a one-tier one-language-for-everything approach. Now it goes one step further by providing a (very-minimalistic for now) web-based IDE that allows to compile & deploy Opa programs in one click in your web browser. Give it a spin!"

Submission + - Opa: new web development platform (blogspot.com)

koper writes: "Opa is a new generation of web development platform. It is a new programming language, a new web server, a new database and a new distributed execution engine, all of them tightly integrated to provide a great experience for web developers. Few days ago it became open-source.

Why should you care about yet another language? There are few things that make Opa stand out from the crowd:
  • it's a language targeted at the web;
  • it puts lots of emphasis on security;
  • it's a one-stop solution; you write in Opa and it generates for you: the client-side code (JavaScript), database queries, all the glue code etc.
  • scalability won't be a problem: your app is distributed and cloud-ready right from the start.

Curious? Sounds too good to be true? Check out Opa's homepage or my blog for more info.

Submission + - A new, original, open source web tech is born (opalang.org) 1

phy_si_kal writes: Today, a secretive startup from Paris, France has announced that it will open source the Opa technology it has been developing for some time.
Opa is a one-tier web technology (right, that means only one layer at runtime) where Opa source code is compiled into a standalone binary. And, this could be really a game changer in the cloud era as it handles distribution very easily.
Sadly, the code is not yet available but a 171-page manual and tutorial is already available (registration required) and packages seem on the wild.
