An article on the WebAssembly backend work done so far and what lies ahead:
@SanderSpies great article, thanks for breaking down the state of affairs. I’m trying to grasp how far away we are from a decent web assembly experience in OCaml. It sounds quite far still. In fact, the article essentially ends on the sobering point that the garbage collector extension is not mature enough yet to even begin to instrument over it. Do you think we are years away from being able to target web assembly from OCaml? Or more like months?
PS: I noticed you mentioned Tezos benefiting from your work, but so would Holochain, which is the driving force towards web assembly for me personally.
