This week I got a request for a documented overview of the compiler and how it integrates with the Go compiler and runtime. I have just written the starting point of such a document and added it to the Oden repository. If you’re interested, have a look at doc/compiler-overview.md.
If you have any suggestions please post them as GitHub issues. Other cheerful comments are welcome here or at Twitter. 🙏🏾
I will probably add a small guide on how to get started hacking on Oden as well. This is not a huge topic, the project is pretty much a standard Stack setup, with the exception of requiring a Go installation. Nonetheless, if the learning curve for an aspiring contributor can be lowered, it is worth working at.
