Calling out to the community: not for the first time, I find myself in need of a way to measure the impact of a proposed change to the compiler on run-time performance.
Have you worked on a PureScript project that can be exercised as a stand-alone executable—i.e., doesn’t require a web client to test and doesn’t itself reach out to servers or databases or anything that can’t be easily stubbed? Have you written benchmarks for your project, or, at the very least, written tests that can be run from the command line and that take more than milliseconds to run? Or could you imagine doing so easily? And is the source to your project available to the public?
If so, please post a link here. In addition to helping with PureScript compiler development in general, you specifically may also benefit from having PureScript developers (me) optimize the compiler for your use case—or at least, with your use case in mind!
Thanks for reading!
