The Rox Programming Language

Rox is a programming language aimed at describing hardware. The compiler translates source code into synthesizable VHDL.

Building from source

  1. Make sure you have installed:

    • cargo
    • git
    • rustc
  2. Clone the source with git:

    $ git clone
    $ cd rox
  3. Build:

    $ cargo build --release
  4. Install: Once you build, you can copy the generated executable rox to a directory in your path.


The rox executable will read a list of files and output a VHDL for each component defined in the files. For more help run:

$ rox --help
