Elixir and prettier printing

Elixir adds meta-programming to Erlang.
Elixir is a functional meta-programming aware language built on top of the Erlang VM. It is a dynamic language with flexible syntax with macros support that leverages Erlang's abilities to build concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant applications with hot code upgrades.
Jonn Mostovoy kindly requested my permission to name the pretty printing module Wadler.ex, after my work on prettier printing, which extends John Hughes's work, and appears in Richard Bird's festschrift.  See also Dan Leijen's Haskell version.

Worth mentioning Kiama in the same context as well. I is an excellent functional language processing library (including pretty printing), written in Scala:
