Guile on WebAssembly project underway!

-- Fri 03 February 2023

Due to a generous grant from the MetaMask Grants DAO, Spritely Networked Communities Institute today launches a project to enable the Guile programming language to compile to the popular WebAssembly (WASM) platform! Specifically, this includes executing within all popular web browsers, dramatically expanding the number of potential users of Guile-powered applications.

Andy Wingo, consultant with Igalia, is a major contributor to both the Guile and Web Assembly projects and will be leading this effort.

Once Guile -> WASM is complete, the next project will be to move Goblins (our distributed programming core) into that environment so we can build out the other core features and UI required to support our "Agency" software: a framework for rich and secure decentralized applications.

As always, all of this work will be released as open source.
