Rosetta Code

Rosetta Code is a wiki-based programming chrestomathy website with implementations of common algorithms and solutions to various programming problems in many different programming languages.[1]

Website[edit]

Rosetta Code was created in 2007 by Michael Mol. The site's content is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License 1.2, though some components may be dual-licensed under more permissive terms.[2]

The Rosetta Code web repository illustrates how desired functionality is implemented very differently in various programming paradigms,[3][4] and how "the same" task is accomplished in different programming languages.[5]

As of 23 April 2019, Rosetta Code has:[6]

  • 934 programming tasks (or problems)
  • 227 additional draft programming tasks
  • 700 computer programming languages
  • 64,122 programming language examples/entries

Data and structure[edit]

The Rosetta Code site is organized as a browsable cross-section of tasks (specific programming problems or considerations) and computer programming languages. A task's page displays visitor-contributed solutions in various computer languages, allowing a viewer to compare each language's approach to the task's stated problem.

Task pages are included in per-language listings based on the languages of provided solutions; a task with a solution in the C programming language will appear in the listing for C. If the same task has a solution in Ruby, the task will appear in the listing for Ruby as well.

Languages[edit]

Some computer programming languages found on Rosetta Code include:[7]

A complete list of the computer programming languages that have examples (entries/solutions to the Rosetta Code tasks) is available.[8]
