Smalltalk vs DAML: What are the differences?
Developers describe Smalltalk as "An object-oriented, dynamically typed reflective programming language". It is an object-oriented, dynamically typed reflective programming language. It was created as the language underpinning the "new world" of computing exemplified by "human–computer symbiosis". It was designed and created in part for educational use, specifically for constructionist learning. On the other hand, DAML is detailed as "Open-source programming language for writing distributed applications". It is an open-source programming language for writing distributed applications quickly, concisely, and correctly. It runs on the leading blockchain platforms which means that you can build your application now and pick which platform works best for you later.
Smalltalk and DAML can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
Some of the features offered by Smalltalk are:
- Dynamically typed
- Reflective programming language
On the other hand, DAML provides the following key features:
- Supports existing platforms integration like Hyperledger Fabric, R3’s Corda and Amazon Aurora
- Scenario-based Testing
- Fine-grained Permissions
