Hi Stéphane,

Reading the documentation I understand that Lightning is quite lower level (compared to MIR for instance) since the API directly deals with registers yes? So the API user has to so his own « register allocation/handling machinery »? There is no notion on an infinite set of variables that can be defined and used ?

That's correct. Lightning provides you with registers and it's up to you how to use them.

 Hi Stéphane,

The current code would need some small changes to work without a MMU (does the ESP32 have one?) but for the rest Lightning does the job just fine.

I'm a investigating the use of Lighning instead of the already implemented LLVM code for the Faust compiler ( We have a class that translates an intermediate code in LLVM here: I would like to test Lighning instead. The goal is to have a simple JIT chain (even if slower compared to LLVM), simpler to deploy on OS like Android, possibly embedded devices like the Bela board (, ESP32 (, Teensy ( Is is a reasonable expectation in terms of what is currently possible and implemented in Lighning?
