Support for pre-built binaries
I'd like to be able to upload and run pre-built binaries. Running cargo build on Render seems wasteful given that I'll have built the binary locally, in GitHub Actions, and on Render. It would be great to be able to build the project either locally or in my CI/CD tooling and pass that to Render for deployment
I also like this feature to be implemented. I'm a rust developer myself and one thing about rust is that by default the /target folder is quite large, but the actual binary executable is really small and self contained.
The build folder can go up to 3 to 5GBs but the binary does not even reach 80MBs. Being able to just send the binary and run on render should be super quick
We use container images as our 'binary' format. If you containerize your app and build it in GitHub Actions, you can push it to a public or private registry we support, and use our (early access) feature to deploy your image from that registry without rebuilding it on Render.
