OT: Monkey

Ok, its a little bit off topic.
But for people who look also around about other BASIC-dialects this would be interesting:

Mark Sibly, author of the famous BlitzBasic, Blitz3D, BlitzPlus and BlitzMax ( have created a new BASIC-like programming language: Monkey (

Monkey compiles its code to HTML5, Native OpenGL/OpenAL (Windows + Mac), Android, Flash, iOS and XNA.

There existing a commercial version and for testing a demo-version. The demo-version is free for non-commercial use. And it can only compile to HTML5.

The licensing parts of the demo-version. Here the readme:


The Monkey compiler and core Monkey modules have been placed into the public domain.
The Mojo modules are copyright 2011 Mark Sibly.
The demo version of Mojo may be used to create and redistribute non-commercial applications only.
The pro version of Mojo may be purchased from, and may be used to create and redistribute commercial applications.
See the README.TXT files in the bin, modules/monkey, modules/mojo and modules/trans directories for more information.
No warranty implied; use at your own risk.

With HTML5 and its canvas-tag there are now things possible, which needs before Java or Flash.
And it seems, that there comes now more languages for it, which compiles to Javascript.
