Compile to LLVM or WASM

I’m curious if anyone can point me to information on the process and progress being made toward compiled Scala 3 and whether there is a Scala-specific intermediary which branches to LLVM and WASM or if those are two entirely independent projects.

I’d also like to know how much progress has been made on those.

Yes indeed! Check out the Scala Native project. It targets LLVM, which then makes it possible to target a variety of architectures, including WASM.

The stable Scala Native 0.4.x series is already supported by several major libraries: it is fully possible to deploy an HTTP microservice or CLI application compiled to native. Meanwhile we are actively working towards 0.5.x which brings the necessary changes to support multi-threading and WASM.

Great, Awesome! We want this. Keep doing the good work.
