  • cranelift-jit-demo

    JIT compiler and runtime for a toy language, using Cranelift

    JITs are somehow more tricky and differ in the a few points including: a) Codegen is much more time critical. b) JITs must know what's allready generated and what isn't. c) JITs often rely on informations only generated at runtime and must respond to that. See here for a JIT example witten with cranelift:

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • HVM

    A massively parallel, optimal functional runtime in Rust

    High-order Virtual Machine (HVM) is a pure functional compile target that is lazy, non-garbage-collected and massively parallel.
