Imba is a programming language and a toolchain for building web applications. It is a programming language that compiles down to performant JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. Imba's syntax is similar to Ruby or Python, with the goal of making code more readable and maintainable. The language integrates reactive programming concepts directly into its syntax and has features like virtual DOM that automatically update the browser’s view when underlying data changes. This frameworkless approach allows developers to build complex UIs without relying on large front-end frameworks or libraries.
