I am thinking about building a tool to use from the command line.
The tool would provide a set of commands that interact with a remote API (from a bug tracking service, imagine something like Jira). The objective of the tool is to provide an alternative way to perform simple modifications directly from the terminal, instead of having to open the page in the web browser, etc.
Ideally I want the tool to be distributed as a single binary that can be put in the $PATH and executed.
I’ve seen that Go and Rust (apart from the always beloved C) are adequate for this requirements. But the thing is: I’m in love with Elixir and I would love to write this tool in it. Would Elixir allow me to generate a ready-to-run binary file?
