One of the things we've run into as we've worked with customers and developed our own examples at Cosmonic is the need to serve UIs that are consuming services you are running inside of wasmCloud. Our own examples required you to either run the UI using npm or to run a docker image. This felt less than ideal and didn't fit with our vision of WebAssembly being the future of distributed computing.

We just released a new version of the petclinic example that demonstrates how you can bundle up a UI for your application into a single actor. Now when you start the full petclinic example, the API and UI are served from the same place

Hybrid meetup hosted by Stuart Harris, co-founder, Red Badger on Wed., March 2, part of a series called “Wheel of Tech”

Guest presenters from Cosmonic included Brooks Townsend, lead software engineer, and Taylor Thomas, engineering director. Also presenting was Kostya Babanakov, enterprise solutions engineer, SingleStore UK and EMEA.

This event focused on why the use of WebAssembly server-side represents a major revolution in platform design as we move beyond the cloud as a destination. Coupled with products like wasmCloud and NATS, WebAssembly is creating a whole new paradigm for cloud native and eliminating entire classes of problems in the process.

Those new to WebAssembly (WASM) often start with the basics: “What is WebAssembly?,” “How does it work?,” and “Why is it worth paying attention to?”

Simply put, WebAssembly is a virtual machine that executes in a browser as an alternative to JavaScript. For the enterprise, the real magic comes from WASM’s evolution into a high-performance, cross-platform polyglot sandbox that can be used to build distributed and back-end systems.

As I wrote in The New Stack, one of the fastest-growing Cloud Native trends of 2021 is the adoption of WebAssembly (wasm). With distributed application runtimes like wasmCloud (a Cloud Native Computing Foundation sandbox project we donated this summer) we see WebAssembly appearing on the server and the edge. This in turn addresses the myriad set of challenges hindering distributed application development, deployment, and maintenance.

The reasons behind the surge are broad and driven by CPU diversity, multiple operating environments, security, distributed application architecture, and scalability, all of which transcend deployments into a single public cloud provider.

It’s true: Cosmonic, the WebAssembly pioneer, is bringing the joy back to distributed application development. Our goal is to enable developers to deliver truly portable applications, independent of where they execute and the capabilities they deliver.

With the 0.50 release of wasmCloud, we proudly believe we’re enabling a critical foundation for building universally portable cloud-native applications with WebAssembly that can plug into multi-cloud, multi-edge and far-edge environments directly inside a browser.
