Hello everyone, I am relatively new to erlang. I would like to connect Python and Erlang, both are on the same machine.
I have used ZMQ and Erlang ports. For ZMQ I used the chumak library. Both worked well.
Unfortunately, the pros and cons are not entirely clear to me.
When I use Erlang Ports I can supervise my Python process. If I use ZMQ chumak I can only supervise my ZMQ connection (Erlang process). Is this correct?
Can I combine ZMQ and Erlang ports and for example send heartbeats via ports to supervise the specific Python process? Does that make sense at all?
