Fortran-lang Community Projects

Fortran Standard Library (stdlib)

A community-driven project for a de facto ‘standard’ library for Fortran. The stdlib project is both a specification and a reference implementation, developed in cooperation with the Fortran Standards Committee. GitHub,Documentation,Contributing.

Fortran Package Manager (fpm)

A prototype project to develop a common build system for Fortran packages and their dependencies. GitHub,Documentation,Contributing.

This website is open source and contributions are welcome!. GitHub,Contributing.


The effort to build a new community around Fortran started at the beginning of 2020 and was initially led by Ondřej Čertík [1] and Milan Curcic [2]. Starting in several discussions around ambitious proposals for the Fortran Standards Committee, the Fortran Standard Library (stdlib) [3], the Fortran Package Manager (fpm) [4] and the webpage with new logo [5] were created. With the new webpage and projects attracting more contributors, the Fortran-lang discourse was created to provide a place for general discussions around all the things Fortran, announcing newly started projects, getting help, etc. Since its creation the Fortran-lang community was joined by hundreds of contributors.

Get Involved

Join the Discussion

The easiest way to join the community and contribute is by commenting on issues and pull requests in the project repositories.

Whether Fortran beginner or seasoned veteran, your feedback and comments are most welcome in guiding the future of Fortran-lang.

Build and Test

Get more involved with each project by cloning, building and testing it on your own machine(s) and with your own codes; if something doesn’t work, create an issue to let us know! We value user feedback highly, be it a bug report, feature request, or suggestion for documentation.
