Standard Benchmark Suite

(Vanessa McHale) #1

Any interest in a standard benchmark suite? I think it would be quite useful for comparing implementations (Haskell, Ruby, Rust) which I think would be a fun way to improve the quality of all implementations.

Yeah, I would be interested in that! :slightly_smiling_face:

This will become more important as time goes on because if one implementation begins to outperform other ones it will put pressure on them to perform well, too, so that Dhall expressions can be shared across various languages.

Also, here are some examples you might find useful that were used when benchmarking the recent performance improvement’s to the Haskell implementation’s normalizer:
