cargo wasix


To install this Cargo subcommand, first you'll want to install Rust and then you'll execute:

$ cargo install cargo-wasix

After that you can verify it works via:

$ cargo wasix --version


The cargo wasix subcommand is a thin wrapper around cargo subcommands, providing optimized defaults for the wasm64-wasi target. Using cargo wasix looks very similar to using cargo:

  • cargo wasix build — build your code in debug mode for the wasix target.

  • cargo wasix build --release — build the optimized version of your *.wasm.

  • cargo wasix run — execute a binary.

  • cargo wasix test — run your tests in wasm64-wasi.

  • cargo wasix bench — run your benchmarks in wasm64-wasi.

In general, if you'd otherwise execute cargo foo --flag you can likely execute cargo wasix foo --flag and everything will "just work" for the wasm64-wasi target.

To give it a spin yourself, try out the hello-world versions of programs!

$ cargo new wasix-hello-world
     Created binary (application) `wasix-hello-world` package
$ cd wasix-hello-world
$ cargo wasix run
   Compiling wasix-hello-world v0.1.0 (/code/wasix-hello-world)
    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.15s
     Running `cargo-wasix target/wasm64-wasi/debug/wasix-hello-world.wasm`
     Running `target/wasm64-wasi/debug/wasix-hello-world.wasm`
Hello, world!

Or a library with some tests:

$ cargo new wasix-hello-world --lib
     Created library `wasix-hello-world` package
$ cd wasix-hello-world
$ cargo wasix test
   Compiling wasix-hello-world v0.1.0 (/code/wasix-hello-world)
    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.19s
     Running target/wasm64-wasi/debug/deps/wasix_hello_world-9aa88657c21196a1.wasm
     Running `/code/wasix-hello-world/target/wasm64-wasi/debug/deps/wasix_hello_world-9aa88657c21196a1.wasm`
