[erlang-questions] Erlang in the browser
Tue Oct 25 22:36:31 CEST 2011
Is anyone working on a stripped-down erlang VM to be run in a browser,
maybe as a plugin?
Download the .beam and run it instead of a script/jar.
httpc for ajax-style work, sockets already in place for websocket stuff.
Cross platform due to portability of beams, VM already compiles to all
of the significant platforms.
async actor model with lightweight processes and micro-heaps ... other
code looking to go here but Erlang already there
"fe" used for frontend, thinking that maybe it's a more extensible
name for anything "not web"
fe:update_item(TheDOM, button1, "new text") when is_dom(TheDOM). %% or
"button1" to save atoms
It sounds like many of the building blocks are there...anyone already
moving on this?
