WebAssembly WASM

Open-source WebAssembly projects categorized as WASM

WebAssembly (abbreviated WASM) is a binary instruction format for a stack-​based virtual machine. WebAssembly is an open standard that defines a portable binary-code format for executable programs, and a corresponding textual assembly language, as well as interfaces for facilitating interactions between such programs and their host environment.

Top 15 WebAssembly WASM Projects

  • assemblyscript

    A TypeScript-like language for WebAssembly.

  • Project mention: Borgo is a statically typed language that compiles to Go | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-30

    I like your take but JavaScript was literally the assembly language of the web until WASM came along. There was no other language that TypeScript could compile to.

    This train of thought lead me to discover AssemblyScript! https://www.assemblyscript.org/

  • waforth

    Small but complete dynamic Forth Interpreter/Compiler for and in WebAssembly

  • Project mention: Show HN: TinyWasm – A tiny WebAssembly Runtime written in Rust | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-07

    Super nice project! I also spent the last month writing a WASM interpreter ( https://github.com/rrampage/wart ) using Java 21. I started it as an excuse to try out the pattern matching in switch / sealed classes in Java. It kind of snowballed in scope and can now run Doom and Waforth ( https://github.com/remko/waforth )! Have not yet tried compiling it to WASM and running it as a meta-circular interpreter.

  • wasm-snake

    Classic Snake in direct WebAssembly

  • Project mention: Classic Snake in Direct WebAssembly Text | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-04

    All of the game graphics, state and logic are written in WebAssembly Text. The host environment (Javascript) is responsible for:

    Game tick loop

    User input

    Providing characters "0123456789GAMEOVER" byte data on game startup

    Blitting the pixel buffer to the display with WebGL2

    The game uses 3 virtual pages of memory (64kb each) for a total of 192kb. Within those exist the pixel buffer contents, the characters data and snake positions. For more detailed breakdown you can check src/snake.wat.

    The memory is shared between WASM and JS. On each game tick, the pixel buffer region of the memory is transferred to a WebGL2 texture, uploaded to the GPU and blitted to the screen.

    For more info you can refer to the repo - https://github.com/gnikoloff/wasm-snake

  • wasmrogue

    A roguelike written in WASM, of all things.
