I'm a contributor to the Julia language and many packages.
PackageCompiler.jl has become the de facto method for creating standalone Julia applications. In this talk, we will demonstrate the use of
PackageCompiler.jl to produce shared library bundles. This functionality was added recently and allows the easy creation of location-independent dynamic libraries which can be linked to and called from C, C++, Rust, or other languages which can link to and use C libraries.
PGFPlots is a plotting package for LaTeX that produces plots with vector graphics and interfaces with the math typesetting of LaTeX.
PGFPlotsX.jl is a Julia plotting package that provides an interface to PGFPlots by transpiling Julia objects to LaTeX code. Furthermore, the figures generated by
PGFPlotsX.jl are directly rendered in IPython notebooks, Pluto and VSCode which allows for rapid plot prototyping. It also serves as one of the backends to the popular
The ability to create shared library bundles was recently added to
PackageCompiler.jl. In this talk, we will discuss the technical details of the implementation and give in-depth examples of using the resulting shared library bundles from C and Rust.
