This is the WASM version, you can try it out here.


Ensure the Rust toolchain and wasm-pack are installed. Then do the following:

git clone https://github.com/TheDiscordian/rust-starfish-wasm
cd rust-starfish-wasm
wasm-pack build --target web

That'll build the package, if you want to test it, run something like the following in the same directory to spin up an HTTP server:

python3 -m http.server

Finally, navigate to http://localhost:8000/src/web in your web browser to view the page.


I believe file i/o is the only thing not working. Happy to take a PR for that. Any other issues are likely unexpected, please open an issue if you encounter one 🙂
