Benchmarking 9 Flavors of Ruby
We benchmarked 9 alternative Ruby implementations for the same compute-heavy algorithm that is easy to migrate to from an existing Ruby codebase. Our comparison looks at ease-of-use, gotchas, performance, and memory usage of JRuby, Crystal, Rust, Ruby-to-WebAssembly, C-extensions, MRuby, CRuby JIT, and Goby. Each implementation provides Dockerfiles to play with.
