Reia was a general-purpose concurrent object-oriented programming language for the Erlang virtual machine. As of August 10, 2011, Reia has been declared defunct in favor of Elixir.[1]

Reia supported multiple programming paradigms including imperative, functional, declarative, object oriented, and concurrent. It used the actor model for concurrency in a manner that worked alongside its object system. It used pattern matching as the primary operation by which it selected branches to take and bind variables. It also had a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it was therefore similar in varying respects to Erlang, Ruby, and Python.
