Baba Is Program is a language inspired by the game "Baba Is You" and mostly based off of Java.

Note on relation to Code is Eso

I honestly didn't know there was another programming language that had the exact idea. The syntax here is different and more like Java, but if you want a more proper version you should check out Code is Eso.

Examples

Hello World:

SAY "Hello, World!"

A runnable tutorial:

Block-Comment is
BABA IS PROGRAM

A esotric language inspired by the game 'Baba is You'

This is a block comment, and you can write it as 'Block-Comment is'.
You can end it like so:

and end Block-Comment

Comment You can also make single-lined comments like this.

Comment In order to declare a variable, you can do <Variable> is <Definition>

StringVar is "String"
IntegerVar is 123

Comment You can do math like so:

IntegerVar2 is 1 plus 2
IntegerVar3 is IntegerVar minus 20

Comment And you can print like so:

Say "Hello, World!"
Say IntegerVar3

Comment And also input:

StringVar is Input

Comment This alone should make it Turing Complete (I think, don't quote me on that though.)
Comment Here's some extra stuff that's probably important
Comment Multi-line statements are done like so:

foo is "bar" and hello is "world"

Comment If/else statements are done like so:

If foo is "bar" then
    Say foo
and end If
Else If hello is "world" then
    Say hello
and end If and Comment Either if or else works here.
Else then
    Say "No vars equal to themselves"
end Else

Comment You can also use parenthesis and standard and/or boolean checks.

If (foo is "bar" and hello is "world") or 1 plus 2 is 3 then
    Say "Nice"
and end If

Comment Also Greater/Less than checks are done like this:

If 1 is less than 2 and 2 is greater than or equal to 2 then
    Say "Stuff"
and end If

Comment You can do var++ or var-- like so:

var is 10
var is added
var is subtracted

Comment For statements work similarily to Java/Javascript syntax

For (Initialization is i is 1 and Termination is i is less than 11 and Increment is i is added) then
    Say "i is " plus i
and end For

Block-Comment is
The Java equivalent would be this:

for (int i = 1; i<11; i++) {
    System.out.println("i is " + i);
}

..anddd that's about it!

There would be stuff like functions and whatnot but in all honesty I'm really bad at programming.
So functions may come sooner or later.

Hopefully.

Oh, and one other thing:

you can simply end the program by saying 'end'
and end Block-Comment

end

Comment it's not necessary at the end (obviously)
Comment Also, you don't have to capitalize "If", "Else", etc.
Comment I just did that for readability purposes.
Comment They're case-insensitive, so you can go all caps like the original game:

YOU IS "YOU"
BABA IS YOU

IF BABA IS YOU THEN
    SAY BABA
AND END IF

Fibonacci Sequence:

BLOCK-COMMENT IS
Fibonacci Sequence

Equivalent Java code:

int n = 12
int x1 = 0
int x2 = 1

for (i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
    System.out.println("x1")
    int sum = x1 + x2
    x1 = x2
    x2 = sum
}

AND END BLOCK-COMMENT

COMMENT To set your own # of terms, replace 12 below with any number
n IS 12
x1 IS 0
x2 IS 1

FOR (INITIALIZATION IS i IS 1 AND TERMINATION IS i IS LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO n AND INCREMENT IS i IS ADDED) THEN
    SAY x1
    sum IS x1 PLUS x2
    x1 IS x2
    x2 IS sum
AND END FOR
