I wanted a slicker, shorter syntax for making webpages - something for front-end development that matched Flask's lightweight feel and ease of use - so I built this templating language.
It has a basic (highly customizable) symbol set with a few keywords and a few idiomatic structures, but I think it's pretty easy to look at.
I have been developing wrapper languages and grammars since I began programming, and this was a quick and dirty way to try out a lil' syntax I dreamed up.
I love words and puzzles, and I thought it would be awesome to bounce off of Wordsmith.org's phenomenal Internet Anagram Server by creating a drag-n-droppable way to rearrange the letters in names/sentences to create other names/sentences.
I grew tired of testing and debugging in black and white, and I challenged myself to produce a "caveman's style suite" for C++ development. Because the name CSS was already taken, and I felt that the code looked "sick" after the styling, I chose siC++.
