Here is the author’s presentation, HolyJit: Fire the Ion Cannon!. Notably, the author names PyPy and Truffle as similar projects in page 16.
I wonder how this relates (relates, not compares) to Truffle.
I’m still beginning in compiler development, but this seeing infrastructure for compilers on top of Rust makes me happy
I’m not sure there, but there’s definitely someone relating it to pypy: https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/77ljya/holyjit_a_new_hope_a_jit_for_firefoxs_and_servos/domskb3/
The name is a reference to Graal, said the author. They referred to both PyPy/RPython and Truffle/Graal as similar projects in their presentation on HolyJit.
Holy jit, that looks awesome!!
