JavaScript everywhere unfortunately.

Or the rise of WebAssembly and end on the reign of JavaScript whatsoever.

    I am considering using Blazor for my cv site that I will make one day. Might be a nice project to start things off I think.

    Dev is not only web. And node is not the only vm out there...

    @mt3o I know it's not only web. But as we could see there's a JavaScript plague creeping into all the things.

    @irene temporary trend. In the past they wanted to do everything in coldfusion ;)

    @mt3o I don't even know what that is.

    Wasm and js will work together for a long time.
    Wasm is actually slower in simple dom manipulation than js right now.

    @musician JavaScript engines had a 10 years headstart 😁

    @musician @irene currently you cannot call DOM functions directly from a wasm binary, but it's probably going to be calling the exact same code as the JS engine does once the shims are in place.

    @beegC0de even if only 90% of the code will be in wasm it will be better than 100% in JS. IMO.

    @irene no no I'm talking about the underlying DOM implementation code. There are some projects that are trying to procedurally create ffi shims for all web apis so you can literally avoid JavaScript altogether!

    In the current climate, you can write in almost any language you want and transpire it to js.

    Web Assembly also needs to be done in another language such as c++ or rust and then compiled.

    Keeping that in mind, I would imagine in the short term (10-15 years), js would be predominately be used for UI, while heavy processing tasks such as encryption, custom video transcoding/decoding, custom DRM, p2p network management and WebRTC logic or games be provided in Web Assembly.

    Having said all of that, there is still the potential of generating web assembly code from typescript, so who know how that will go

    @rusty-hacker transpiling to JavaScript is the problem in itself.
