Snek is a simple, educational programming language inspired by Python. Developed for microcontrollers and embedded systems, Snek's design makes it easy to port to different platforms with limited resources. To save space on these small devices, Snek uses tokens instead of keywords and emphasizes simplicity over advanced features found in mainstream Python distributions. The language is accompanied by an ecosystem of tools like a web-based editor that allows users to code in Snek and then execute their programs on real hardware without needing separate compilation steps or specialized toolchains.
