Moved to a dedicated thread as this is well worth a read :smiley:

The base64 improvements look impressive; one bummer is I don’t see an equivalent to omitting Base.decode64’s ignore: :whitespace option - :base64.decode/2’s docs mention it always strips whitespace.

OTOH it looks like the implementation in Base has been recently refactored with a link to the the blog post that the one at the top of this thread updates for OTP 26, so those improvements to binary matching + construction should apply automatically :tada:


I’m going to have to try it against protobuf.
