Haply

Haply top image

Haply is a Logo interpreter aimed for small children. The language is simple yet powerful, and has a very appealing concept for small kids.

In Logo, you control a small virtual turtle living in the screen, who has many disguises and pens of several colors. The turtle uses her pens to draw what you tell her to draw. She can also learn to draw several things thus extending her dictionary and allowing the teaching of many programming skills including procedure creation and recursion.

The idea of haply is to make it as user friendly as possible while sticking as much as possible to the original Logo specification. It also includes the support for simultaneous turtles, editable disguises and sound creation.

Haply is based on Logic, and the language specification can be viewed very easily.

Screenshots and more to come.

This project can be found in sourceforge under the haply name.
