5 Toolchain reference

Hoot is not just a Scheme to Wasm compiler. It’s also a self-contained and general purpose Wasm toolchain. Hoot does not use binaryen, wabt, emscripten, etc. in order to assemble and disassemble Wasm. The entire toolchain is implemented as a set of Scheme modules that can be used to automate other Wasm targeted build workflows. Since everything is implemented in one place, in a single language, and because Guile encourages a REPL-driven development workflow, Hoot makes a great platform for learning Wasm in a hands-on, interactive way!
