Ruby-LLVM

Ruby-LLVM is a Ruby language binding to the LLVM compiler infrastructure library. LLVM allows users to create just-in-time (JIT) compilers, ahead-of-time (AOT) compilers for multiple architectures, code analyzers and more. LLVM bindings can also be used to speed up Ruby code by compiling Ruby methods on the fly.

Requirements

  • LLVM 3.2, including libLLVM-3.2 (compile LLVM with --enable-shared).
  • In order to ensure the usability of JIT features (i.e. create_jit_compiler), compile LLVM with --enable-jit as well.

About version numbers

The first two digits of ruby-llvm's version number refer to the required major and minor version of LLVM. The third digit refers to the ruby-llvm release itself. Because LLVM's api changes often, this coupling between LLVM and ruby-llvm versions is useful.

Homebrew

LLVM can be installed with Homebrew by executing brew install llvm --shared
