  • Fortran on WebAssembly
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Apr 2024
    A little context: this dive into Fortran is part of the excellent work George has been doing on WebR, to get R running in the browser. The R sources contain a fair bit of Fortran code, and I believe WebR originally used f2c to compile the Fortran to C first, before compiling that to wasm.

    With the patches to LLVM Flang, WebR can be built with a real Fortran compiler.

    I think George didn't want to say it directly in the blog post, but he has said that he's hoping that Flang would take his patches or implement better ones. That would be a win-win -- these patches wouldn't need to be maintained separately, and since unmodified Flang would be able to compile to wasm, it would benefit other projects out there that use Fortran.

    I don't think it's close to useful - but the R in webassembly webR, that runs in the browser looks interesting.
