WebAssembly: Caching When Using Emscripten

  • n our first article about WebAssembly, An Introduction to WebAssembly, we allowed Emscripten to handle all of the plumbing for us (including the HTML) so that we could get a feel for what was possible with WebAssembly modules by jumping right into some code.

    In some of the articles that followed, we examined some of the technologies related to WebAssembly and used a bare-bones module (no Emscripten plumbing) to do so.

    In this article, we're going to circle back to caching a WebAssembly module to an HTML5 IndexedDB database, but, this time, we're going to enable some of Emscripten's plumbing to show how you can implement caching within Emscripten's framework.
