    WAGI and WCGI are the WASM based spiritual successors.

    Compile a CGI program in any language to WASI, then use https://github.com/deislabs/wagi to run it.

    Yeah of course! They've got STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR and I've built a Virtual Filesystem. But if you're using WASI binaries locally they don't have that restriction.

    You might be interested in WAGI: https://github.com/deislabs/wagi

  • Waggy, the library for writing WAGI API handlers in Go
    3 projects | /r/golang | 28 Nov 2022
    As I'm sure you've heard, WASM has been growing in popularity and use over the past few years. And with the creation of WASI (Web Assembly System Interface) and WAGI (Web Assembly Gateway Interface), WASM is starting to venture outside of running just in the browser. And in the case of WAGI, if you've been programming since the earlier days of the internet, it might feel very similar to CGI programming (and that's because it's based on CGI1.1!) WAGI provides a way for developers to define handlers for HTTP requests and route them to specific functions inside of, or entire, WASM modules. It does so by piping the headers of the incoming request to os.Args[1:], piping the body of the incoming request to os.Stdin, and writing the response to os.Stdout. (To learn more about configuring, routing, compiling, and deploying WAGI routes, as well as the limitations of WAGI routes, please consult the WAGI docs and the TinyGo WASM docs)

    What do you think of WAGI [1], which is basically CGI for WASM modules.

    I'm experimenting with WASM & Rust but with a different framework named wagi, there's a great video by Rainer Stropek & Stefan Baumgartner that gives a little introduction to it [0]

    It does support it, the runtime we are currently using enables that -- see https://github.com/deislabs/wagi/blob/main/docs/writing_modu...

    Good point on the docs, I will open an issue and add some information about it, thanks!
