      Should be rewritten in JavaScript?

        JS, Python and Ruby benchmarks would be appreciated

          And functional comparison with CPython and PyPy. That is if it only works in benchmarks it doesn't really exist per se.

            Does this mean you can make native binaries ?

                Yes it can create binaries so you dont need a JVM on the target system.

                  Sort of.
                  The native tool is not actually part of GraalVM, it's a separate download. And it's experimental, it only works on a handful of projects atm. Last I checked, it could only target Linux on x86_64, I don't know how much has changed in the meantime.

                  But when it works, it works wonders

                    It's no longer experimental, and Red Hat is contributing many significant improvements as well.

                    It support much more than x86_64 now - including support for ARM64 targets.

                    Many great projects have started to take advantage of this native capability - just have a look at https://quarkus.io/ to see how we make the native-image compiler more accessible and productive. (disclaimer : I work on Quarkus)
