Open Source LOLCODE Editor and Interpreter for Android

Sometimes, we all need a little bit of lulz in our lives. While most get this from meme-worthy image macros and eccentric YouTube videos, the more developer inclined can satisfy the urge through “interesting” esoteric programming languages such as LOLCODE. This particular esolang, which was originally developed in 2007 by Adam Lindsay, is heavily inspired by the same lolspk slang used in those addictive cat images.

Now thanks to XDA Forum Member bandoncontortion, there is a LOLCODE editor and interpreter for Android. Using the editor, you can code and edit to your heart’s content. And with the console, you can execute and test your LOLCODE.

Make your way over to the original thread to get your dose of lulz. And if you’d like to see how it was all done or fork some of that goodness for yourself, take a peek at the source code for the application and interpreter. Please note that the interpreter is based on previous work for Java by Brett Kail.
