    Project mention: Ruby Outperforms C: Breaking the Catch-22 | | 2023-09-09

    This is specifically about breaking the myth that performing expensive self-contained operations (e.g, parsing GraphQL) in a native extension (C, Rust, etc.) is always faster than the interpreted language.

    The JS ecosystem has the same problem, people think rewriting everything in Rust will be a magic fix. In practice, there's always the problem highlighted in the post (transitioning is expensive, causes optimization bailouts), as well as the cost of actually getting the results back into Node-land. This is why SWC abandoned the JS API for writing plugins - constantly bouncing back and forth while traversing AST nodes was even slower than Babel (e.g

  • boa

    Boa is an embeddable and experimental Javascript engine written in Rust. Currently, it has support for some of the language.

    Project mention: Boa JavaScript Engine v0.17 released | /r/rust | 2023-07-09

    Yeah, pretty much. I'm not sure if we're gonna need to implement Static Shapes first but at least we need to make it possible to separate codeblocks from contexts for this to be feasible.
