Welcome to Wheat
Wheat is a language and environment for creating dynamic web sites like blogs
and portals: Every object has a URI, the virtual machine is a web server,
and the development environment is a Wiki!

Wheat — Wheat's
Wheat is an Open Source project.
February 14th, 2005: Our CodeCon 2005 presentation was well received. Thanks to Jim and Kragen for all their work on the demo. There was at least one mention in the press:
And after the very first Sunday presentation, one audience member claimed he found the new web programming language Wheat "so beautiful, it's made me cry!" — The Register
In the flurry of progress in the days leading up to the demo the first rudiments of Farm, the development environment, got written. We have also have definitely turned the corner and are writing more Wheat code than C++!
If you are interested in playing with the system, we'll be putting up a tar ball release on SourceForge before the end of the week. If you like it and are interested in contributing, we'd love your help. We'll be planning the next release cycle soon and are hoping for a real alpha release this Summer.
