# Vyxal

What's a Language of the Month?

See the meta post for nominations. In short, during May, those who wish to participate should learn (at least the basics of) Vyxal, and use it to solve challenges. Participation is completely optional, but is anticipated to be fun!

Vyxal is the latest addition to the plethora of stack-based languages used for code golfing. But unlike its competitors, Vyxal has a special focus upon readability and elegancy. Indeed, the codepage has been specially chosen to be as mnemonic as possible. Further, constructs from practical languages (such as functions, lambdas and easy list manipulation) are present.

• Vyxal has been known to repeatedly win against languages like 05ab1e, Jelly and Pyth... it managed to beat Dennis in fizzbuzz

• It has features designed to make it feel analogous to practical languages while remaining concise

• It has reached version 2.0, so all heavy development has been completed

• Bugs are fixed relatively quickly: 10 of the most recent issues were all promptly addressed

## Bounty

Unlike previous LoTMs, in addition to a 50 rep bounty for first anwers, the deadlineless 200 rep bounty will also be awarded. Post 5 Vyxal answers this month and you'll get an easy 200 rep added to your account.
