edit: This was an April’s fools joke. However, bunny will remain functional. It’s only implemented as a thing wrapper around benchee so unless we completely break API (which I don’t see coming) it’ll remain functional. Continue reading for cute bunny pictures.
We waited for this very special day to announce this very special naming change – what better day to announce something is being named bunny than Easter Sunday?
It is available on hex.pm now!
We think this is an abstraction that’s really going to offer us all the flexibility that we’re going to need for future development. As we approach 1.0, we wanted to get the API just right.
This is true courage.
We also haven’t been exactly subtle dropping hints that this naming change was coming. For once I have described benchmarking as bunnies eating food on numerous occasions (each bunny is a function that tries to eat it’s input as fast as it can!). Other than that, the frequently occurring bunny pictures (or even gifs) in benchee Pull Requests could have been a hint.
Also, eating is what they do best:
For now bunny still works a lot like benchee. However, it exposes a better and more expressive API for your pleasure. You know, bunny can’t only run like the good old benchee. No! Bunny can also sleep, hop, eat and jump!
This all comes with your own personal bunny assistant that helps you benchmark:
After all this hard work, the bunny needs to sleep a bit though:
This is clearly better than any other (benchmarking) library out there. What are you waiting for? Go and get bunny now. Also, I mean… just LOOK AT THEM!
