Web assembly support

  • I'm curious to know if you've thought about adding web assembly support.

  • It's been asked a few times, but there are no plans at the moment. I feel like most use-cases are compiling huge sections of legacy code, which may be too large to have too big a RAM requirement to even fit in the available memory anyway.

    At the moment, Espruino has JIT or even the ability to write functions containing C code that gets compiled on a server, so you can do a lot of 'fast' things pretty easily anyway.

    However if there was a 'killer' use for it I'd be happy to reconsider as potentially we could get a long way pretty quickly just by using the existing JIT compiler infrastructure.
