07-26, 16:10–16:20 (US/Eastern), 32-141

Expronicon is a toolkit for metaprogramming in Julia, offering a rich set of functions for analyzing, transforming, and generating Julia expressions, first-class support of MLStyle's pattern matching, and type-stable algebra data types for efficient and simple code generation. Perfect for boosting productivity and improving coding efficiency.


Expronicon is a collective toolkit built on top of the awesome MLStyle package for functional programming features. It features

  • a rich set of tools for analyzing, transforming, and generating Julia expressions
  • type-stable algebra data type
  • expanding compile-time dependencies, help you get rid of dependencies that are not needed in runtime to improve your package's loading time
  • ExproniconLite: a light-weight version with 0 dependencies for latency-sensitive applications
