Performance-intensive operations: WebAssembly is well-suited for performance-crunching calculations such as cryptography, video decoding, and physics simulations. It runs at near-native performance which makes it an ideal tool for such operations.
Porting desktop applications to the web: WebAssembly lets programmers convert old legacy code (written in C, C++, or Rust) to run smoothly on the web without completely re-writing them.
Creating and Rendering Graphics and Games: The speed and execution efficiency of WebAssembly make it the perfect choice for game developers and graphic programmers.
WebAssembly libraries usually exhibit the following functionalities:
Near-native performance: WebAssembly is a low-level bytecode that runs at high speed by taking advantage of common hardware capabilities.
Language Support: It doesn't confine you to a particular language. You can write in languages such as C, C++, Rust, etc. and compile that code to WebAssembly.
Security: WebAssembly offers a sandboxed execution environment. Even if a WebAssembly module contains malicious code, it's prevented from accessing other parts of the system without explicit user permission.
Efficiency: WebAssembly binaries are compact and designed to be fast to decode and execute.
When deploying WebAssembly for your projects, there are a few gotchas/pitfalls to look out for:
Compatibility: Although WebAssembly is supported by major browsers, there are still some outdated ones that may not support it.
Start-up performance: WebAssembly modules can sometimes be large, leading to slower start-up times for your apps. It's crucial to implement lazy-loading and use npm packages that convert to WebAssembly only when necessary.
