Idris is a domain-specific pure functional programming language developed by Edwin Brady that supports general algebraic types, dependent types, and type-driven programming. Inspired by Haskell and ML languages, Idris allows software developers to provide richer specifications of program behaviors using expressive types that are checked at compile time. The Idris compiler leverages its powerful type system to anticipate runtime errors through elaboration, a process where high-level descriptions are transformed into executable code. Idris can be used for both research purposes in formal verification methods and practical software development projects where correctness is critical.
