Meta programming languages
Meta’s own Hack programming language is among the four supported languages for the future. It is an open source typesafe variant of the PHP language and runs on the HipHop Virtual Machine (a virtual machine used in programming). This language has been around since 2014, when it was first implemented by Facebook.
PHP in disuse
PHP was launched in 1995 and has already been very successful, but this programming language has lost popularity in recent years, although it is still present in most websites. It is also often used in the web development process of many application and server connections.
Programming Languages – Facebook
Meta also plans to support Rust, Python and C++ as it refines its language selection. For data science, applications that use machine learning, and Instagram, Meta specifically recommends Python, while C++ and Rust are more specific to backend services.
Python is simple for beginners and is supported by several frameworks and libraries of classes and functions. This programming language has been growing in recent years due to its uses in the most different applications. Furthermore, it can be used to create very specific software because of its various libraries.
Meta will continue to approve other languages
Meta will continue to approve new “community-supported” languages, such as Java, Erlang, Haskell, and Go. However, they will only be approved for certain cases and will receive less support from the institution.
Goal’s future plans
Going forward, Meta intends to release a new feature that will change the way monetization works on its platforms and is already working on it. Muscis Revenue Sharing will serve to share revenue between content creators and music artists through a feature that will be the first of its kind.
