C, C ++ and Rust are currently supported as source languages. Compiling is still done on the server side. The team wants to outsource this work but in the future more on the client, so on the computer of the developer. The IDE also provides some tools to examine, verify, or directly modify the generated Wasm code using its textual representation. Likewise, the binary code can be examined directly and the IDE can, if desired, generate a flowchart of the code’s function calls.
The work on WASM began almost three years ago and the project is supported by all major browser vendors. The goal is to establish Wasm as the unified target of compiled programs on the Web while ensuring good integration with web technologies and the browsers themselves.
