Introduction to WebAssembly Text

Most of the time, the task of writing a WebAssembly program is something you quite rightly delegate to the compiler. This is because, in most cases, WebAssembly need serve only as a compilation target for functionality you've written in some higher level language.

That's all fine and good — but if, for example, you are deploying to an environment in which memory is a scare resource, or you need to perform a performance critical task that is entirely CPU-bound, then it is worth considering writing your program directly in WebAssembly Text.

In this introduction to WebAssembly Text tutorial, I've laid out the foundational concepts that will allow you to write a basic browser based app.

Have fun!
