Summary note
This paper describes the design and implementation of a new language called Mobiscript, which provides a framework for novice coders to build native mobile applications. By building this language, with a focus on its potential educational value, we aim to fill a void for coders who are interested in building mobile applications but lack the complex knowledge base required to do so using conventional languages and development environments. This paper discusses the various decisions that informed the syntax, structure, and overall design of Mobiscript, as well as the schemes used to design its parser and interpreter.
