DOM language

This is a little experiment around using the DOM to represent an AST that can be evaluated in the browser with JavaScript. One neat side effect of this is the ability to use CSS to render a meaningful visual representation of the program being executed.

Clearly, this is not a performant way to do things, but it is fun :)

After cloning the repository, open up any of the files found in the prog directory in your browser -- you should see it represented visually, and you'll see any output logged to the console.

About the language

At this point, it is extremely simple and undocumented. All statements are executed in a global context. A rudimentary type system currently consisting of string, number, and boolean are mapped to native JavaScript types for evaluation.
