Reia is a Ruby-like scripting language for the Erlang virtual machine. Reia brings you the best of both worlds between Ruby's friendly syntax, reflection, metaprogramming, and the amazing power of blocks, and Erlang's immense abilities for concurrency, distribution, hot code swapping, and fault tolerance.

Reia's source code is available on Github. There are no releases and thus no direct download links yet, sorry! See the README on Github for instructions on how to build Reia from source.
