Volant is a general-purpose data-oriented high-level programming language with a focus on speed, power, asynchronicity, and concurrency. Volant is designed with simplicity in mind, allowing both low-level and high-level features with simple and easy to use syntax. Volant is transpiled to c with no or a very thin layer of abstraction over the code you write, which makes it as fast as c in almost all cases.

The team

The language was designed and developed solely by me.

@AmazingMech2418 Volant uses c as an intermediate representation and there are countless other languages that do the same. No sane person would ever write a compiler to asm if he isn't immortal or doesn't have a team of 20 devs.
Also, it would have been an absolute waste of time to write a compiler to asm because Volant does not need any more access to the machine than what c gives.
