The Factor Programming language is an open-source, stack-based, general-purpose programming language. It offers performance often found only in low-level languages while still providing high-level features (e.g., functional programming paradigms) and a rich standard library. This project consists of two sub-projects: adding numerical programming functionality to the Factor codebase and creating an online Factor platform. With these changes, the team hopes to increase the usability and accessibility of the language.
