Language portability is the ability for modules written in one language, like Rust, to run inside a system written in another, like Go. Because WASM runtimes can be embedded within other software, they can be used to introduce specialized components that wouldn’t otherwise be possible in your tea...
WebAssembly is not tied to any hardware architecture, so it can be executed on several different platforms without needing to re-compile. When a WASM module is executed, it is compiled to machine-native code either ahead-of-time (AOT) or just-in-time (JIT).
WASM runtimes such as Chrome’s V8...
WebAssembly is intended to execute code at native or near-native speeds.
WebAssembly is a representation of your code that can easily be executed in a high-performance manner by optimizing itself for each platform at runtime. We are still in the early days of WebAssembly, but it is already ...
