Emscripten's compiled Web Assembly, used minimally

Sam Thorogood en Dev.to escribe,

Why did I write this post? Emscripten is a wonderful tool, but it has a long history (for asm.js), and isn’t perfect. I think it errs too much on the side of “magic”, and many posts rave about how it’s so easy to EMASM or use binding-fu, but this all comes at a cost, and can introduce huge amounts of inadvertent overhead—think copying huge memory buffers around because we’re trying to make them immutable or easily exposed.

Every language that is being compiled to Web Assembly needs a runtime—whether it be Go, or Rust, or C/C++ as we have here. I don’t believe that we’ll ever really be able to directly import Web Assembly via ES2015 modules, at least not without changes on the JS side. But it behooves us to write the smallest one we possibly can.

Creo que todos vemos el potencial del wasm. Para muchos de nosotros, muchas de las otras plataformas que ahora pueden acceder a la web son completamente ajenas a nosotros, y realmente necesitamos aprender esas herramientas, mejorar la experiencia del desarrollador de wasm. e imo ofrece bibliotecas pre compiladas que los “desarrolladores web tradicionales” pueden usar.
