Can anyone see any path towards running Julia code on iOS / Android?
It would be fantastic to be able to solve the two-language problem (e.g. prototyping in Python and deploying in C++).
The idea would be to release an app on the app-store that contains a Julia kernel.
Would it be possible to get Julia to precompile the Julia code, so that it generates a binary library exposing C-style functions, and the iOS/Android code could link against this library?
Something like this could massively accelerate the development of apps that require complex mathematics.
And how about the full-blown Julia process of dynamic compilation? Apple has a ‘no compilers’ rule but IIRC it has allowed many apps that violate this rule in the past. If the app consumer is allowed to write and execute arbitrary Julia code this may fall foul, but if the developer is the only one writing the Julia code then Apple may be willing to allow it.
