Right well if you can encode it using a Uint8Array in the worker, there's a version of JSON parse that can handle them and you can use transferrable objects with Uint8Arrays that should be near-instant. Of course, you could do anything else you like with the array using a generator based coroutine.

Ahhh yes that can work. Although the next challenge is to part out your async json parser because I shouldn’t want to bring in the full js-coroutines library just to do that part.

I think you could probably just get away with the coroutine runner in this article and not bother with js-c, that's probably a few lines of code that will deal with your requirements.

I found out that Uint8Array is not a transferrable object, is it? developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/W...

But ArrayBuffer is. And ImageData has property .data.buffer that is ArrayBuffer, so i have used that to transfer between the main and worker thread: github.com/calvintwr/blitz-hermite...
