  • wapm-cli

    📦 WebAssembly Package Manager (CLI)

    You can see this paying off with wapm, which lets you download applications that would have normally required compilation for your environment and run them anywhere with a supported runtime, which is imo pretty neat.

  • lunatic

    Lunatic is an Erlang-inspired runtime for WebAssembly

    There are other interesting applications too, like Lunatic, which replicates the BEAM VM experience but with any language that compiles to wasm and can have language bindings written for it.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • wasm3

    🚀 The fastest WebAssembly interpreter, and the most universal runtime
