    Phoronix: Wasmer 2.2 Bringing Its WebAssembly "Singlepass" Compiler To AArch64

    Wasmer 2.2-rc1 is out today as the WebAssembly run-tme to "run any code on any client" with its broad platform coverage and allowing numerous programming languages from Rust to PHP to C# being able to be compiled into WebAssembly and then running on any OS or embedded into other languages for execution...

    I've tried installing wasmer. I get an error that it's not available on my platform, and when I try to contact their forum, it says it was shut down a year ago. So I figure it's just vaporware...

        there will be an interesting phoronix benchmark when more better languages get their module like: zig,phix-lang,crystal,nim.

          And do what? They do not support arm for linux. The web site says Run any code on any client. But that is not true,

            Assuming that you've used github or collaboration software, in general, before, you can go through the sources, documentation; search through existing issues that people have raised.

            e.g. https://github.com/wasmerio/wasmer/i...3Aopen+aarch64

            Worth noting there, the ongoing development and updates to the files, contradicting your statements that it must be vaporware. It can be confusing if, as you say, the forum was closed. I suspect that they moved toward using github for relevant work and discussions around the software. Obviously, that doesn't replace a forum, but it also doesn't suggest what you stated here or inferred.

              While it seems that they do not provide binary package for arm, you can still compile one yourself using cargo.

              https://github.com/wasmerio/wasmer-install here is the doctument on how to compile the softwares, though you will need a statically linked llvm, probably compiled using https://github.com/llvmenv/llvmenv

                I admit I was hasty in judgement. The issue seems to have been rust. After upgrading to the latest version of rust 1.58.1 (9 days ago) wasmer is able to compile from source on my arm. I take it all back.
