WebAssembly Hub News Recap – March 2020
On March 5th, we announced an update to WebAssembly Hub in partnership with Google and the Istio community in support of the Istio 1.5 release. Released back in December 2019, WebAssembly Hub is a service for building, sharing, discovering and deploying WebAssembly (Wasm) extensions for Envoy Proxy and Envoy-based solutions like API gateways and service mesh.
WebAssembly Hub is focused around providing a great developer experience for WebAssembly with a workflow that simplifies the process of building and deploying Wasm extensions. Developers can quickly spin up a new WebAssembly project in C++ (we’re expanding this language choice, see below), build it, and push it to an OCI-compliant registry. From there, operators can declaratively and dynamically load the module.
Since the announcement, there have been a number of articles and resources published. This post aggregates the information into one place for you.
