Self-contained one-binary feature which discuss on ruby kaigi 2021 day 2, 《 Ruby Committers vs the World / CRuby Committers》
Yes, what i said is this.
- Go-language supports to make self-contained one-binary.
- Is it useful for ruby?
I personal propose add this feature into ruby 3.X in the future, i consider this is a killer
advantage compare to others dynamic language.
And, this feature is very important for distribute code to the third party.(e.g. client) for two reason:
- distribute is easy.
- for protect code change unexpectly by client
in fact, my friend switch from ruby to go recent days, the only reason is, it could not find out
a usable solution to distribute code to our client safely.
Because i could not find out a mature similar issue, so, just create this for discuss.
BTW: maybe not so useful, Emacs editor since version 28 can native compilation of Elisp files which has greatly improved performance and start-up time, i don't know if this tech can be borrow from there for ruby.
anyway, i consider both are similarities, i hope that can help.
Following is some links come from Andrea Corallo, the emacs native compilation maintainer.
Hope there have useful info for AoT ruby .rb source code into
.rbn(rb native, as .el compile to .eln) use libgccjit.
