We have redesigned our website from the ground up and with it we are also shipping a new experience for the whole ecosystem.
As we were redesigning the website, we made an important discovery: the experience for newcomers was far from ideal and presented a range of different products that lacked a cohesive story that tied them together.
Wasmer Runtime for running WebAssembly modules, WAPM for hosting the files, and then the language integrations and so on…
So we decided to improve it by unifying all the products into the same umbrella to serve a cohesive and easier-to understand story.
WAPM packages are now integrated into Wasmer, WAPM users are now Wasmer users and the
wapm CLI commands are now full integrated into the
While the objective of WAPM was (and still is) to serve as the official package manager for WebAssembly modules, we realized that no other runtime (other than Wasmer) had adopted WAPM.
Having a separate project added significant overhead to develop new features and overall the developer experience was not ideal.
So, in lieu of improving the ergonomics for the developer, we have been working relentlessly on integrating both WAPM and Wasmer into the same umbrella.
wapm.toml is now
wasmer.toml (although old projects using
wapm.toml will still work)
wapm-cliand wapm.io website will continue to work as normal, so no further action is required for you!
We hope that this unification make things easier for you as a Wasmer user, and we hope the new design that we are rolling out gradually will be of your taste! (please let us know if there are more things that you will like to see improved!)
