  • libjxl

    JPEG XL image format reference implementation

    The problem is that the instructions for actually running the WASM file are not that clear... the docs the author mentions shows how to compile to WASM, which is easy enough, but then here's the instructions to make that actually work in the browser:

    Yeah, you need some mysterious Python script, a JS service worker at runtime, choose whether you want the WASM or WASM_SIMD target, use a browser that supports Threads and SIMD if you chose that, make sure to serve everything with the appropriate custom HTTP headers... just reading that, I can see that to get this stuff working on non-browser WASM targets would likely require expertise in WASM, which is the point of the OP. WASM's UX is just not there yet.

  • stb

    stb single-file public domain libraries for C/C++

    The STB headers are mostly built like that: https://github.com/nothings/stb

    You could also add an optional 'convenience API' over the lower-level flexible-but-inconvenient core API, as long as core library can be compiled on its own.

    In essence it's just a way to decouple the actually important library code from runtime environment details which might be better implemented outside the C/C++ stdlib.

    It's already as simple as the stdlib IO functions not being asynchrononous while many operating systems provide more modern alternatives. For a specific type of library (such an image decoder) it's often better to delegate such details to the library user instead of circumventing the stdlib and talking directly to OS APIs.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
