In episode 81 of Thinking Elixir, we talk with Digit and Quinn Wilton about the Burrito project. It wraps up Elixir to a single binary, enables cross-platform builds using Zig to help while also enabling NIFs! They share how the security focused software they create uses this to run in isolated environments where Elixir can’t be installed. A really cool project that can be used for things like one-off scripts to long running CLI applications with full OTP features and more. They share some of the challenges they had to overcome in creating Burrito and how it being OpenSource helps the company and their project.
