ruby.wasm is a collection of WebAssembly ports of the CRuby. It enables running Ruby application on browsers, WASI compatible WebAssembly runtimes, and Edge Computing platforms.
Try ruby.wasm (no installation needed)¶ ↑
Try ruby.wasm in TryRuby in your browser.
Quick Links¶ ↑
Quick Example: Ruby on browser¶ ↑
Create and save
index.html page with the following contents:
<html> <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@firstname.lastname@example.org/dist/browser.script.iife.js"></script> <script type="text/ruby"> require "js" puts RUBY_VERSION # => Hello, world! (printed to the browser console) JS.global[:document].write "Hello, world!" </script> </html>

Prebuilt binaries¶ ↑
This project distributes prebuilt Ruby binaries in GitHub Releases. A build is a combination of ruby version, profile, and target.
Supported Target Triples¶ ↑

||No standard extension libraries (like

Notable Limitations¶ ↑
The current WASI target build does not yet support
Thread related APIs. Specifically, WASI does not yet have an API for creating and managing threads yet.
Also there is no support for networking. It is one of the goal of WASI to support networking in the future, but it is not yet implemented.
