53. #EveryoneCanContribute Cafe: WebAssembly with AssemblyScript, first try in Gitpod
Michael F., Michael A. and Ryan Perry discussed getting started with WebAssembly. After researching a bit, we started a new project based on the AssemblyScript introduction, wondering how things are installed with npm and WebAssembly. After a while, we figured to follow the AssemblyScript: Setting up a new project guide which also populates the
package.json scripts section.
After we modified the
index.html body with the
add() demo example, and successfully ran the website preview inside GitPod, we continue to explore. We then added some div id’s to manipulate, keeping the effort as simple as possible and continued adding the functions:
fib() for integer operations,
hello_from() for strings,
format_arr() for sorting arrays, and taught each other both, TypeScript and WebAssembly.
The whole experience was developed in the browser using Gitpod; with a file tree, terminal and port 3000 preview. After the meetup, we have added a
.gitpod.yml configuration file into the project, so that everyone can contribute and learn where we left off :-)
- Learn Wasm project including the Git history from the meetup.
- Includes a Gitpod configuration to launch the meetup results for you to learn.
