  • wasmtime

    A fast and secure runtime for WebAssembly

    Project mention: Mod_WASM: Run WebAssembly with Apache | | 2022-10-03

    It is a runtime for wasm. Wasm is not executable in the same way an x86 binary is. It needs to run in a vm. Wasmtime is one such vm. In a browser context that vm is v8.

  • lunatic

    Lunatic is an Erlang-inspired runtime for WebAssembly

    Project mention: Wasmtime 1.0 | | 2022-09-20

    Congrats to the Wasmtime team on the 1.0 release!

    I'm happy to see that more runtimes are maturing and getting use on production cases... I can't wait to see and show what the future entails for WebAssembly on both the server side and the browser!

    Keep up the good work. Also I'd like to use this message to congratulate other runtimes that I'm excited about (apart from Wasmer, of course!): Wizard Engine [1], Wazero [2] and Lunatic [3].

    The future is bright in Wasm land :)

  • smol

    Project mention: Tokio application structure, critical code flow. | | 2022-07-23

    If you need precise control over scheduling, consider building something on top of

  • blueboat

    All-in-one, multi-tenant serverless JavaScript runtime.

    Project mention: What's with All the Runtimes for JavaScript? | | 2022-08-13

    Right now it is an exciting time for JavaScript. We just got a new shiny fast runtime Bun, with the last new kid Deno being released only 4 years ago, and we have edge computing/serverless runtimes like Cloudflare worker and Blueboat. With all these hypes for the JavaScript community, I could not help but ask, how come only JavaScript gets all these fancy new runtimes? Why don’t we hear these more often in other languages?

  • kube

    Rust Kubernetes client and controller runtime

    Project mention: kubelog - a graphical log viewer for Kubernetes. | | 2022-09-20
  • wasmi

    WebAssembly (Wasm) interpreter.

    Project mention: Help with wasmi | | 2021-11-06

    Hello guys, i was looking for a no std wasm interpreter and i found out about wasmi:, but when i tried it i get an error module env not found. I suspect that in my program i call an extern function putchar() to be able to print and wasmi doesnt support that, but other interpreters i tried support it, for example wain. Are there any alrernatives, or am i doing sth wrong here. I dont have a deep wasm knowledge, i was just wanted to experiment with wasm in a no std enviroment. Heres my code:

  • orogene

    A next-generation platform and package manager for Node.js-compatible and frontend JavaScript projects!

    Project mention: What happened to tink? | | 2022-06-16

    In short, Kat left npm at some point in 2019 after a whole debacle with leadership. For a while they were working on orogene with a couple other ex-npm people, but nothing came out of that. It's really a shame because it looked really promising and they had a lot of cool ideas.

  • actix-net

    A collection of lower-level libraries for composable network services.

    Project mention: Monoio – A thread-per-core Rust async runtime with io_uring | | 2021-12-08

    > Have any other Rust async runtimes use io_uring/gotten at all good yet?

    yes, check out `actix-rt`

  • dvm

    🦕 Deno Version Manager - Easy way to manage multiple active deno versions.

    Project mention: I'll figure it out. | | 2022-02-17

    They can be slow though. If they are behind or you are on a distro that isn't supported at all you can use dvm.

  • aurae

    Aurae distributed systems runtime. (by aurae-runtime)

    Project mention: aurae-runtime/aurae: Simplified distributed systems runtime for application teams. Written in Rust. | | 2022-09-19
  • FutureSDR

    An Async SDR Runtime for Heterogeneous Architectures

  • extreme

    extremely boring async function runner! (by spacejam)

  • spiderfire

    JavaScript Runtime built with Mozilla's SpiderMonkey Engine and Rust

    Project mention: Spiderfire, a JavaScript Runtime using SpiderMonkey | | 2021-12-17

    GitHub Repository: Latest Release:

  • wai

    a wasm interpreter written by rust (by k-nasa)

    Project mention: Take More Screenshots | | 2022-07-24

    It is a lot, but not quite 1000, yet. From I see 436 instructions including SIMD which is over half the population. If I filtered it correctly, it looks like there are about 203 instructions in Wasm without SIMD. Many of those are not necessary for most programs.

    There at least three small Wasm interpreters in Rust




    This list has 169 Wasm instructions

    Wirth's RISC is neat, I'd love to re-do it in RISC-V (only 47 instructions in the base ISA). UM, Chifir and UXN look like Art (not pejorative), I'll definitely read the Chifir paper. They would be great systems to run on top of Wasm.

    One might be able squeeze a Chifir VM into an ESP-32 (with external PSRAM).

  • java-2-times-faster-than-c

    An inquiry into nondogmatic software development. An experiment showing double performance of the code running on JVM comparing to equivalent native C code.

  • extism

    Extend anything with WebAssembly.

    Project mention: A Look at Performance in Wasmtime and Cranelift | | 2022-09-06

    I’d love to see what you think about

  • clojurust

    A proof of concept version of Clojure in Rust.

    Project mention: In the future, OS will be a DB, and Clojure will be the best DML | | 2021-11-15

    At the system layer, Clojure has a rust implementation: ClojuRust. If necessary, implementing a native compiler for a programming language is not a problem at all. In addition, the JVM has GraalVM to support native compilation.

  • te

    A parser, runtime and specification for the text expression language to make text processing human readable (by mara214)

  • v8-runtime-tutorial

    Source code for the tutorial series
