Well, having a single executable to run would be really nice, but it is not clear yet how this single executable is going to be packaged/generated. Pretty cool!

Has anyone given a try?

Any thoughts on this single executable file generation process? :)

That's really interesting. You should write a review.

Yes, I even have made a Docker image to help test Deno without installing it.

In the process, I have discovered that Deno is awesome because a single executable makes the installation pretty easy on most modern systems.

So no need for a ton of shared libraries or to have many interpreters and compilers installed to bake the Deno interpreter.

If you want to give it a try you can use it here (for Docker users): hub.docker.com/r/aminnairi/deno
