Wasmer is a fast and secure WebAssembly runtime that enables super lightweight containers to run anywhere: from Desktop to the Cloud, Edge and IoT devices.

This document is also available in: πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ δΈ­ ζ–‡ -Chinese β€’ πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ Deutsch-German β€’ πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ EspaΓ±ol-Spanish β€’ πŸ‡«πŸ‡· FranΓ§ais-French β€’ πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ ζ—₯本 θͺž -Japanese β€’ πŸ‡°πŸ‡· ν•œκ΅­μ–΄ -Korean.


  • Secure by default. No file, network, or environment access, unless explicitly enabled.
  • Supports WASI and Emscripten out of the box.
  • Fast. Run WebAssembly at near-native speeds.
  • Embeddable in multiple programming languages
  • Compliant with latest WebAssembly Proposals (SIMD, Reference Types, Threads, ...)


Wasmer CLI ships as a single executable with no dependencies.

curl -sSfL | sh
Other installation options (Powershell, Brew, Cargo, ...)

Wasmer can be installed from various package managers. Choose the one that fits best for your environment:

  • Powershell (Windows)

    iwr -useb | iex
  • Homebrew (macOS, Linux)

    brew install wasmer
  • Scoop (Windows)

    scoop install wasmer

You can start by running QuickJS, a small and embeddable Javascript engine compiled as a WebAssembly module (qjs.wasm):

$ wasmer qjs.wasm
QuickJS - Type "\h" for help
qjs > const i = 1 + 2;
qjs > console.log("hello " + i);
hello 3

Here is what you can do next:
