Ioke is a dynamic, strongly typed, prototype-based programming language targeting the Java Virtual Machine and the Common Language Runtime. It was designed by Ola Bini, a developer of JRuby. It has a very simple homoiconic syntax, somewhat similar to Io.
Ioke was designed for expressiveness, above all else including performance. It was designed to be its own most important tool, and is an example of language-oriented programming, and encourages the creation of domain-specific languages.
Ioke was first announced on November 6, 2008. Ioke's code contains documentation and unit tests.
