My name is Giuliano, I’m new on discuss, but it’s a while I am interested in Ocaml and I built some little projects (hobbistic level) on my own using this language, but even if I am not a noob, I am far to be an expert.
I work almost entirely on Linux, and I was wondering if someone has considered building AppImages for linux (just the “final executable”) (no cross compliation)
In my opinion there will be some benefits: despite the bigger size, we’ll have some executable that can be shipped to linux machines at the price of a copy.
Obviously not all scenarios will benefit from this, but if I need to build a micro service, and I don’t have the possibility to go with docker/kubernetes/whatever are the other names, I can provide an AppImage and that will be my distribution.
Any ideas or suggestions on where can I start?
Or tell me if my approach is wrong and there are better solutions.
Thanks in advance
