As many of you Erlang and Riak fans know, Dave Smith has been hard at work on Rebar. For those of you who don’t know, Rebar is a truly cool packaging and build tool for Erlang applications. Dave took a break from coding this morning to post a few words on his blog Gradual Epiphany about why he was inspired to write Rebar and what it means for building and deploying applications. Check it out. It’s a great read.
Also, if you haven’t had a chance to join the Rebar mailing list, you can do so here.
