Made with WebAssembly
Made with WebAssembly is a website A showcase of awesome production applications, side projects, and use cases made with WebAssembly ( Wasm ).
Table of Contents
After several Twitter threads (1, 2, ...) on highlighting use cases, projects, and companies in production using WebAssembly. Myself and a few other Wasm community members thought it'd be a great idea to have a dedicated place to find projects using WebAssembly, and highlight what WebAssembly can be used for! We were hoping it could be easy to comb through, and provide additional context on why/how individual project are using Wasm. 👍🏾
Thank you for wanting to contribute! PRs are definitely welcome and appreciated! Below is a guide for contributing different parts of the project, and getting started with your first PR:
General Contribution Areas
These are general areas of the project you may want to contribute to considering the architecture of the project:
The showcase projects are located under the
showcase/ directory in the project. Each showcase project is a markdown file, that adds metadata (E.g 1, 2) to help describe the project. All showcase projects are added to the
showcase.json, and output as an HTML file, by the
showcase-build.js build script.
Contributing new projects is definitely welcome and super appreciated!
To add a new project to the showcase, create a markdown file with the following metadata (See other example if you get confused, or open an issue):
name- The name of the project
description- A Short description of the project. Will be used for fuzzy searching.
keywoards- Space seperated list of words. This will be used for fuzzy searching.
logo_url(OPTIONAL) - A Url to the logo for the project
website(OPTIONAL) - A URL to the website for the project
source_url(OPTIONAL) - A URL to the Source code for the project
Once you have your markdown file, you can test it in the project using
npm run dev. And then, feel free to open a PR when the rendered showcase project markdown looks correct.
If you are a project owner and want the project edited or removed, please feel free to open a PR as well, or open an issue.
For larger ideas or new sections of the site, it is recommended to open an issue first for discussion.

Create your own fork of the made-with-webassembly repository by clicking "Fork" in the Web UI. During local development, this will be referred to by
Download your fork to a local repository.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:<your username>/made-with-webassembly.git
- Add an alias called
upstreamto refer to the main
torch2424/made-with-webassemblyrepository. Go to the root directory of the newly created local repository directory and run:
git remote add upstream email@example.com:torch2424/wasm-by-example.git
- Fetch data from the
git fetch upstream master
- Set up your local
masterbranch to track
origin/master(which will rapidly become outdated).
git branch -u upstream/master master
Branch (do this each time you want a new branch)
Create and go to the branch:
