Installing Lumen

Lumen is an alternative BEAM Implementation.
Warning that this is still at a very early stage. It promises the ability to build WebAssembly

I am not currently interested in using Rust to build it from sources, but there are now images published here

I used the following to install the tarball (I use a mac):

sudo tar xf lumen-0.1.0-nightly-x86_64-apple-darwin.tar.gz -C /opt

This deploys the bundle to: /opt/lumen

The compiler is now available at: /opt/lumen/bin/lumen

Here are more details on lumen:
