NAME

Alien::wasmtime - Find or download wasmtime for use by other Perl modules

VERSION

version 0.11

SYNOPSIS

 use Alien::wasmtime;
 use FFI::Platypus 1.00;
 
 my $ffi = FFI::Platypus->new(
   api => 1,
   lib => [Alien::wasmtime->dynamic_libs],
 );

DESCRIPTION

This Alien provides wasmtime a runtime for Wasm (Web Assembly). It's intended to be used by FFI (not XS) to build Wasm bindings for Perl.

METHODS

dynamic_libs

 my @libs = Alien::wasmtime->dynamic_libs;

Returns the list of libraries needed to use wasmtime via FFI.

ENVIRONMENT

ALIEN_WASMTIME_VERSION

Override the version of wasmtime downloaded. To get the latest development release you can install with:

 $ env ALIEN_WASMTIME_VERSION=dev cpanm Alien::wasmtime

CAVEATS

Wasm and wasmtime is a moving target at the moment, so expect breakage until it becomes stable.

Normally Aliens should try to use the system library before downloading from the internet. Since wasmtime isn't provided by many package managers yet, we skip this step for now. In the future we will support probing of the system wasmtime.

This Alien is geared for use with FFI only.
