Like Docker, but for WASM.


You can download binaries directly from the Releases page.

Or you can install it using cargo:

cargo install wacker-daemon
cargo install wacker-cli

Getting started

Start the wacker daemon:

$ wackerd
[2023-11-22 07:25:31 INFO wackerd] server listening on "/Users/user/.wacker/wacker.sock"

Run a WebAssembly program:

$ wacker run hello.wasm
$ wacker run time.wasm

Where hello.wasm is a simple WASM program that prints out Hello, world! and exits, and time.wasm is a long-running program that constantly prints out the current time.

You can find more WASI program examples at https://github.com/wacker-dev/wasi-examples.

Serve an HTTP WebAssembly program:

$ wacker serve hello_wasi_http.wasm --addr

The path can be a local file path or a URL, eg:

$ wacker run https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wacker-dev/wacker/main/wacker/tests/wasm/hello.wasm

List running programs:

$ wacker list
ID                        PATH                   STATUS     ADDRESS
hello-w0AqXnf             hello.wasm             Finished
time-xhQVmjU              time.wasm              Running
hello_wasi_http-luf1vz6   hello_wasi_http.wasm   Running

Fetch the logs:

$ wacker logs hello-w0AqXnf
Hello, world!

$ wacker logs -f --tail 5 time-xhQVmjU
current time: 2023-11-22 07:42:34
current time: 2023-11-22 07:42:35
current time: 2023-11-22 07:42:36
current time: 2023-11-22 07:42:37
current time: 2023-11-22 07:42:38

And you can also stop/restart/delete the program:

$ wacker stop time-xhQVmjU
$ wacker restart time-xhQVmjU
$ wacker delete/rm time-xhQVmjU

$ wacker -h
