Bins is a small Up app for serving Golang binaries cross-compiled on-demand. Consumers of your program do not need Go installed, nor do you need to cross-compile binaries for each release and platform.
Here's an example using node-prune:
$ curl URL/github.com/tj/node-prune/cmd/node-prune > /usr/local/bin/node-prune $ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/node-prune
The initial build may take 10-15s, however subsequent requests are cached by CloudFront for a configurable period (for example one day).
This project is just conceptual for now, but it would be nice to provide it as a free service at some point when money is not a concern (CDN data transfer for large assets is expensive). Security concerns would have to be addressed as well.
In general I feel that we have the necessary information and tooling to make this kind of a thing a reality (and perfectly secure), while taking the burden away from the program author.
