  • Why WebAssembly is innovative even outside the browser
    11 projects | | 8 Aug 2021
    While a "host" application (for the WASM runtime used) is required to enable access to graphical output (or user input) it doesn't have to be a browser.

    At the (almost) most basic level a chunk of memory can be used as a framebuffer--the host application would read the pixel data which the WASM bytecode wrote and then write it to the host display via OS-level routines.

    There are some plans/experiments at making a framebuffer "device" available as part of WASI.

    I've written a couple of graphical WASM host applications that aren't browsers (and which don't use memory for pixel data transfer just integer values returned from a function):

    The "WebAssembly Calling Card (WACC) Viewer" is implemented via the Godot game engine and an addon that integrates the Wasmtime WASM runtime with the engine:

    (Also implemented a WACC Viewer in Rust:

    WACC specifies how to transform three integer values (returned from a function in a WASM module) into a coloured triangle in order to render it on screen.

    Another "host application" I implemented was a libretro compatible plugin that loads a WASM module and then feeds the module with input from libretro & retrieves framebuffer pixel data (one pixel at a time :D ) via a WASM function call & writes it to the libretro framebuffer for display.

pg_cjk_parser - Postgres CJK Parser pg_cjk_parser is a fts (full text search) parser derived from the default parser in PostgreSQL 11. When a postgres database uses utf-8 encoding, this parser supports all the features of the default parser while splitting CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) characters into 2-gram tokens. If the database's encoding is not utf-8, the parser behaves just like the default parser.

xidel - Command line tool to download and extract data from HTML/XML pages or JSON-APIs, using CSS, XPath 3.0, XQuery 3.0, JSONiq or pattern matching. It can also create new or transformed XML/HTML/JSON documents.
