I belatedly updated the algorithmic pattern blog with some recent activities

A co-worker and I published a post / overview on some stuff we’re working on. It’s about writing functions, compiling them to Wasm components, and combining them into a multi-language (Rust, Python, Javascript) workflow to run on the Everywhere Computer (a platform we’ve developed at Fission):

Writing functions for the Everywhere Computer in Rust, JavaScript, and Python, and compiling to Wasm components with WIT and WASI to run everywhere

How do you compile the Python and JavaScript functions? The best we figured so far was to compile a Python and JavaScript interpreter and then use the interpreter to evaluate Python and JavaScript sourcecode, but it needs a huge WASM runtime and isn't particularly fast.

The post discusses the tools. The underlying pieces are componentizeJs and componentise-py. Tradeoffs abound to your points tho.

The Javascript one embeds spider monkey which means it’s interpreted

Python uses py03

Thanks! I should read the post first before asking questions, sorry! 😄

Np! We built a tool atop all this for JS, currently called Wasmify. Python is stock componentize. After you gander, down to chat more in detail!
