Entish is a a resource aware recursively sandboxable language built on RarVM. The language aims to allow for:
- fine grained control of process-internal resources (cpu time/cycles, memory usage)
- control of access to process-external resources (filesystem, networking)
- doing the above recursively, to securely sandbox libraries from each other
- the platform-independent suspension, serialization, de-serialization and resumption of process state ("jumping processes")
Entish is single-threaded (control only resides at one place at a time) and deterministic (a copy of the program state with the same input will always create the same results, down to the bit). Functions can recursively sandbox other functions and predetermine the resources that can be used.
The language was implemented in Python/RPython.
Get the language syntactically and semantically closer to Python, so that most programs can easily be translated into this paradigm.
