WASM Will Allow You To Share Across Platforms… Soon
Imagine being able to share code across platforms without slowing down the network or compromising the safety of the information. WASM already has all the makings of this capability. With a few tweaks here and there from developers, the open standard should be able to communicate across platforms in the near future. For programmers, this means higher productivity and a reduction in language errors across devices. This means better integration between desktop and web-based apps.
What developers are looking to achieve, is to allow a language such as Python to run in its own development time without compromising the other elements of the site. It would also open up the door to run modules together with different source languages, such as a Rust module and Go module running together. Webassembly will replace all the glue code that can clog up the browser.
WASM Is Designed For The Web
Browser Plugins Become Simplified
Go developed TinyGo, a compiler designed for small applications. The compiler allows developers to develop WASM code. WASM is an important component in running on-demand IOTA nodes as browser plugins, and thanks to its compact nature, it will place far less strain on storage and speed than current languages. Using an IOTA node as a plugin can save a lot of trouble, as the Go library is filled with resources. TinyGo will also allow these plugins to be run on microcontroller boards.
