Phel, un LISP nativo en PHP

Speaker: Chema Phel:

Completely open source:

Phel is a functional programming language that compiles to PHP. It is a dialect of Lisp inspired by Clojure and Janet.


  • Built on PHP’s ecosystem
  • Good error reporting
  • Persistent data structures (Lists, Vectors, Maps and Sets)
  • Macros
  • Recursive functions
  • Powerful but simple Syntax
  • REPL

The following example gives a short impression on how Phel looks like:

# Define a namespace
(ns my\example)

# Define a variable with name "my-name" and value "world"
(def my-name "world")

# Define a function with name "print-name" and one argument "your-name"
(defn print-name [your-name]
(print "hello" your-name))

# Call the function
(print-name my-name)

A community for the Lisp family of programming languages.

Lisp (historically LISP) is a family of programming languages with a long history and a distinctive, fully parenthesized prefix notation. Originally specified in 1958, Lisp is the second-oldest high-level programming language. Only Fortran is older, by one year.
