WebAssembly (abbreviated Wasm) is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine. Wasm is designed as a portable target for compilation of high-level languages like C/C++/Rust, enabling deployment on the web for client and server applications.
A Compile Target: A way for other languages to get first-class binary support across the entire web platform stack.
WebAssembly defines an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) that gets stored in a binary format. Binary is great because it means we can create smaller app bundles. You’re probably wondering how we’ll debug a binary language format.
Among other things, it will be easy to express things like threads and SIMD — a fancy word that means you can line up multiple chunks of data next to each other and invoke a single instruction to operate on all of them at the same time. It stands for Single Instruction, Multiple Data.
This is one of those cases where you’ll probably want to forget about the object system, the garbage collector, and all the fancy dynamic stuff. Just line up some raw bits in little rows and crunch through them as fast as possible.
As great as it is to hear that all the old languages we know and love will run on the web platform now, WebAssembly means one more very important thing:
WebAssembly is an open invitation to developers building future programming languages.
The future of the web platform has never looked brighter. You’d better pull out your shades.
Can React and web technologies compete with native toolkits when it comes to making super complex, rich desktop apps? Can we go further and create better-than-native applications?? Sounds like a good challenge
These apps are not web apps, they are not native apps, they are hybrid “Native Web Apps” and can provide the best of both worlds.

I have been using React JS in my projects for quite some time now and am used to managing routing in my app using the react-router package. I have always been keen on having as little dependencies in my apps as possible, so, I always felt perturbed by the use of this particular package in simpler apps which did not have complex routes.

One of the core ideas in functional programming is composition: building larger things from smaller things. The canonical example of this idea should be familiar with legos.
