WASM instead of C Dependencies?
9 projects | dev.to | 14 Jan 2022
I have web applications written in Rust and Go that need some basic image processing (reading JPEGs, PNGs, writing JPEGs, WebPs, AVIFs and resizing). This is something I always struggle with, because most libraries for image processing are written in C (libpng, libwebp, mozjpeg; or higher-level ones like vips). While there are usually dependencies in each language build on top of those C dependencies, like bimg for Go, I don’t like having C dependencies in a Rust, Go or even Node.js projects.

For image processing, I will use the bimg library because in my opinion it has a very intuitive API and is easy to use, in addition to being very fast.
