Imba is a Web programming language that's fast in two ways: Imba's time-saving syntax with built-in tags and styles results in less typing and switching files so you can build things fast. Imba's groundbreaking memoized DOM is an order of magnitude faster than virtual DOM libraries, so you can build fast things.


Example from the web:
tag app-canvas prop dpr = window.devicePixelRatio prop state = {} def draw e let path = e.#path ||= new Path2D let ctx = $canvas.getContext('2d') path.lineTo(e.x * dpr,e.y * dpr) ctx.lineWidth = state.stroke * dpr ctx.strokeStyle = state.color ctx.stroke(path) def resized e $canvas.width = offsetWidth * dpr $canvas.height = offsetHeight * dpr <self @resize=resized @touch.prevent.moved.fit(self)=draw> <canvas$canvas[pos:abs w:100% h:100%]>
