ask {
  const sumOfSquares = fun (a:int): int {
    const square = fun (a:int): int {
      a*a // equivalent of a:times(a) or times(a, a)

  score :times(3) :plus(1) :toString :call(fun(s) {
    const double = fun(s:string):string {
    s:double // same as s:double()
  }) :toInt :sumOfSquares

// for resources: { score: 2 }
// result is: 11858 

Virtual Machine for security

AskQL queries are interpreted on the server side by Ask Virtual Machine, a secure sandbox environment.

AskVM processes each request individually and decides which resources to give access to, based on the schemas and security policies which you define.

Lightweight and powerful

AskQL is a lightweight library with a low memory footprint. It is also highly efficient in terms of network latency and systems communication.

AskVM can be installed on devices with very limited memory capabilities, such as microwaves and fridges.

Open Source

AskQL is available under MIT License on GitHub.

We are happy to invite you to try it out, share comments and submit pull requests. Your feedback will be very helpful to the community.
