Well, I can see security issues related to just allowing
unparsed/checked code being uploaded and run on the open-source
website. Regardless, I'd want to put a parser in front of the
underlying implementation (which is PHP). Since I was going to do that,
I thought changing the syntax to a nicer one would make sense. The
syntax is basically PHP, but without '$' for variables and allowing
There are reasons why I chose PHP for the underlying platform which I
won't go into here, but you can message me privately if you're interested.
