1 About Kite

Kite is a programming language designed with lightweight systems in mind. On OS X Leopard, the main Kite library is only 88KB, with each package in the standard library weighing in at 13-30KB. Besides size considerations, the design philosophy is that of minimalism–only include the minimum necessary, while giving developers the power to write anything that they can write in any other language. With that in mind, we aim to put up the fewest roadblocks to development out of most other languages.
