Here we have 80 models working from the stat_comp_benchmarks and example_models repos, as well as the "mother model" that @mitzimorris designed to stress test the compiler.
Killer features we currently don't have hooked up that we hope to by the official 1.0 release:
- The optimizer - currently it has a bunch of standard compiler passes and quite a few symbolic replacements that help with performance and numerical stability, but it's not tested fully yet.
- Model class additions
- Faster compile times
To try out this compiler with CmdStan, simply download the binary for your operating system from the release binaries below and drop it into the
cmdstan/bin directory renamed as
stanc (so e.g.
mv ~/Downloads/linux-stanc cmdstan/bin/stanc) - everything else should just work from then on (assuming you don't modify any of the compiler C++ files and cause CmdStan to regenerate bin/stanc from source).
