Shopify CEO Tobi is building a web app with Crystal


That is awesome. I wonder what got him interested now?

This might be the reason:

They also hired the person behind faastruby which had support for Crystal. Maybe the plan is to move some stuff into their own serverless world running Crystal? Excited to see

I would love this to happen.

However “had support for Crystal” is not the same as “running Crystal”. Is it a known fact that faastRuby backed was implemented in Crystal, or had some parts implemented in Crystal?

The back end was Crystal with Kemal. @parruda talked about it a lot.
