[DEV] Build ppc64le binary for rubyjs/libv8 rubygem
« on: March 08, 2020, 09:26:58 am »
Few weeks ago, I was asking why Raptor did not choose Discourse as the forum platform. It turns out that libv8 gem does not support ppc64le because .... Google does not offer an easy way to build v8 library out of the box.

Well, I've spent 2 days to learn how to get v8 to compile and managed to build custom libv8 gems which could satisfy the requirement of Discourse.

If you are interested in how, feel free to have a look at my https://github.com/runlevel5/v8-ppc64le

This means Discourse is a possibility now?

I am going to attempt to ask Google to support ppc64le with their toolings. Wish me luck.

Google is a member of OpenPOWER foundation. So if they do care about foundation, I guess they might ...
