What is Web Assembly ?
Is Web Assembly better than Java Script in terms of speed ?
What values does Web Assembly bring in to the web platform ?
What are the advantages of using Web Assembly ?
- A new language : Web Assembly code defines an AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) represented in a binary format. You can author and debug in a text format so it’s readable.
- A Compile Target : A way for other languages to get first-class binary support across the entire web platform stack.
What are the features of Web Assembly ?
Web Assembly defines an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) that gets stored in a binary format. Binary is great because it means we can create smaller app bundles. You’re probably wondering how we’ll debug a binary language format. Among other things, it will be easy to express things like threads and SIMD, a fancy word that means you can line up multiple chunks of data next to each other and invoke a single instruction to operate on all of them at the same time. It stands for Single Instruction, Multiple Data.
How does Web Assembly cater to the compiling complexities of the code ?
Why not use the JVM ?
Doesn’t this mean other languages will take over ? Won’t this cause fragmentation ?
