re: W3C confirms: WebAssembly becomes the fourth language for the Web 🔥 What do you think? VIEW POST


WebAssembly is the equivalent of llvm for the web. And if you look at it, it is more of a compiler infrastructure. The need of learning it will be to the language developers or some of us that are doing deep stuff. If you look around everybody is doing something similar. Go has WA target. Android went aot in v5 I think, flutter dart compiles to native on mobile and desktop thanks to skia, Swift is llvm, not sure about c# on the desktop, Java has a library called Quarkus for llvm for the web, Facebook tried transcribing php to c, python has cython....


Didn't know about LLVM thing.
