Fortran Programming Language

Fortran-lang ( is a young open source community, formed in December 2019 with the goal to develop modern infrastructure for the language and online platforms for Fortran programmers to collaborate and interact in a friendly, inclusive, and professional setting. Fortran-lang's flagship projects are the Fortran Standard Library (stdlib,, Fortran Package Manager (fpm,, and the Fortran website ( In only 14 months, stdlib has had >140 pull requests merged from 23 contributors, with a total of 43 new procedures and types over 11 modules, and continues to grow. Largely modeled after Rust's Cargo, fpm is a build system and package manager dedicated to Fortran with the key goal to improve programmer happiness. Fpm is already capable of building complex Fortran projects, automatically fetching and building dependencies, and bootstrapping itself. The Fortran website provides all the latest information about Fortran compilers, libraries, and community, as well as an actively developed tutorial. Fortran-lang issues monthly newsletters that detail the relevant news and updates to the projects, and distributes them on Twitter and on its mailing list. Finally, the Fortran Discourse ( is a moderated and inclusive online forum for discussion and collaboration, which, since May 2020, has attracted 146 active users from all over the world.
