In the course of writing my Honours Thesis, I’ve been learning about the lambda calculus, specifically the untyped version. To help me learn about it, I’ve put together a small Javascript app that goes by the original (Church, 1936) definition. I call it Lambda Toy. This app verifies whether or not an expression is a well-formed formula and allows you to carry out renaming and reduction operations.
