    There’s also a talk about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3r0cYRwrSs

    1. 1

      I don’t understand what they mean by “AOT” here. I don’t see any native compilation.

      1. 2

        It can be AOT compiled into bytecode and embedded into an RVM interpreter as a compressed string. It’s not AOT compiled to machine code, true, but AOT compiled nonetheless.

          Oh, you mean like a Smalltalk image instead of doing a tree-walking interpreter? That did not occur to me at all. Neat.

          1. 3

            Yeah! Exactly. Figure 13 of the paper is the entire thing/repl (well, the min version of the library) encoded for use with a JavaScript RVM implementation.
