Bundling an erlang/OTP runtime system with custom applications into standalone executables for multiple platforms

Fri Sep 24 23:21:34 CEST 2010

I'm interested in being able to write and distribute standalone erlang
applications (i.e. a minimal erlang/OTP runtime system would be
bundled in with the application; end-users would not have to download
and install an erlang/OTP distribution on their own). Has anyone
successfully built and distributed erlang applications with all the
required erlang/OTP software bundled in? Similarly, are there any
documented/tested/supported ways of doing it?

I found Joe Armstrong's standalone erlang
<http://www.sics.se/~joe/sae.html> for R9B-0. I didn't find any
related projects (or processes for creating multi-platform standalone
distributions) for R14B, or any of the R13 releases for that matter.
Has anyone done work in this area?

Thank you much,
