# Glychee

[![Package Version](](
[![Hex Docs](](

A simple Gleam benchmark runner which wraps
[Benchee]( for the heavy lifting.

Named after [Gleam](, Benchee and their fruity [Lychee]( offspring:

## Requirements

- Requires Gleam 0.24 or later.
- A recent Elixir and Hex must be installed. You might be required to run
  `mix local.hex` after installing Elixir.

## Quick start

1. Add Glychee to your project: `gleam add glychee`.
2. Create a a custom benchmarking module for example named `my_benchmark` that
   contains a `main`-function. In that module you will define which `Function`s
   to benchmark with one or many `Data`.
3. Run the benchmark:

   gleam clean && \
   gleam build && \
   erl -pa ./build/dev/erlang/*/ebin -noshell -eval 'gleam@@main:run(my_benchmark)'

### Full example

If you do not have a Gleam project yet, create it with:

gleam new foobar
cd foobar

Add glychee: `gleam add glychee`, then in your project create a file named
`src/benchmark.gleam` with following source code:

if erlang {
  import glychee/benchmark
  import gleam/list
  import gleam/int

  pub fn main() {
          label: "list.sort()",
          callable:fn(test_data) {
            fn() {
          label: "pre-sorted list",
          data: list.range(1, 100_000),
          label: "reversed list",
          data: list.range(1, 100_000)
          |> list.reverse,

Then run in your terminal via:

gleam clean && \
gleam build && \
erl -pa ./build/dev/erlang/*/ebin -noshell -eval 'gleam@@main:run(benchmark)'

Now you can alter the functions and data specified in above's example to
whichever function of your application or library you want to benchmark.

Note that you can benchmark multiple functions with different data sets
in one go.
