What is Pixilang

Pixilang is a pixel-oriented programming language for small graphics/sound applications and experiments. Originally created by Alexander Zolotov (NightRadio) and Mik Razuvaev (Goglus) for non-programmers, demosceners and designers. It is cross-platform and open source (MIT License).

Pixilang programs are stored in text files (UTF8) with extensions .txt or .pixi. So you can use your favorite text editor to create/edit these files. Pixilang has no built-in editor.

Key features:
  • universal containers (pixi-container) for any type of data;
  • dynamically typed variables (for integer or floating point numbers);
  • functions for sound synthesis and recording;
  • functions for block data processing;
  • supported file formats (load/save): WAV, PNG, JPEG, GIF (animated);
  • supported sound systems: ASIO, DirectSound, MME, ALSA, OSS, JACK (iOS and Linux);
  • native code (external dynamic libraries) support;
  • OpenGL acceleration;
  • MIDI In/Out.

Pixilang for Windows, Linux, WinCE (WinMobile), OSX, iOS (sources only). +sources
