1 WebAssembly Landing, WebAssembly, wasm
WebAssembly is a new type of code that can be run in modern web browsers — it is a low-level assembly-like language with a compact binary format that runs with near-native performance and provides languages such as C/C++ with a compilation target so that they can run on the web. It is also designed to run alongside JavaScript, allowing both to work together.
2 Caching compiled WebAssembly modules Caching, IndexedDB, JavaScript, Module, WebAssembly, compile, wasm
Caching is useful for improving the performance of an app — we can store compiled WebAssembly modules on the client so they don't have to be downloaded and compiled every time. This article explains the best practices around this.
3 Compiling a New C/C++ Module to WebAssembly C, C++, Compiling, Emscripten, WebAssembly, wasm
When you’ve written a new code module in a language like C/C++, you can compile it into WebAssembly using a tool like Emscripten. Let’s look at how it works.
4 Compiling an Existing C Module to WebAssembly C++, Compiling, Emscripten, WebAssembly, wasm
A core use-case for WebAssembly is to take the existing ecosystem of C libraries and allow developers to use them on the web.
5 Converting WebAssembly text format to wasm WebAssembly, assembly, conversion, text format, wabt, wasm, wast2wasm, wat2wasm
WebAssembly has an S-expression-based textual representation, an intermediate form designed to be exposed in text editors, browser developer tools, etc. This article explains a little bit about how it works, and how to use available tools to covert text format files to the .wasm assembly format.
6 Exported WebAssembly functions Guide, JavaScript, WebAssembly, export, exported functions, exported wasm functions, wasm
Exported WebAssembly functions are how WebAssembly functions are represented in JavaScript. This article describes what they are in a little more detail.

8 Loading and running WebAssembly code Fetch, JavaScript, WebAssembly, XMLHttpRequest, bytecode
To use WebAssembly in JavaScript, you first need to pull your module into memory before compilation/instantiation. This article provides a reference for the different mechanisms that can be used to fetch WebAssembly bytecode, as well as how to compile/instantiate then run it.
9 Understanding WebAssembly text format Functions, JavaScript, S-expressions, WebAssembly, calls, memory, shared address, table, text format, was, wasm
This finishes our high-level tour of the major components of the WebAssembly text format and how they get reflected in the WebAssembly JS API.
10 Using the WebAssembly JavaScript API API, DevTools, JavaScript, WebAssembly, compile, instantiate, memory, table
This article has taken you through the basics of using the WebAssembly JavaScript API to include a WebAssembly module in a JavaScript context and make use of its functions, and how to use WebAssembly memory and tables in JavaScript. We also touched on the concept of multiplicity.
11 WebAssembly Concepts C, C++, Emscripten, JavaScript, WebAssembly, concepts, rust, text format, web platform
This article has given you an explanation of what WebAssembly is, why it is so useful, how it fits into the web, and how you can make use of it.
