re: Will WebAssembly replace JavaScript? Or Will WASM Make JavaScript More Valuable in Future? VIEW POST


WebAssembly is the furture of all business web application development. I am pretty sure. Especially for business applications which has huge front end functionality. Frameworks which compile code into WebAssembly like Blazor can save about 40% development time and this is major fact for choosing this framework. You can save your development time and save customer costs. Companies, which stay in the past and continue development in Angular, React or Vue will be slower and more expensive than their competitors over time. For simple web pages, there will be always Javascript. There is no big advantage for simple web pages to use WebAssembly or frameworks which are built on WebAssembly.


I kind of lost your point when you started using percentages without real data? Do you have data tha backs up the 40% number?


+1, would be very interested in seeing numbers for this. It's my experience that developing in all these WASM languages takes way longer than JS and there's no way there's going to be a 40% increase in productivity without solid frameworks to handle the heavy lifting.

You mention Blazor - have you actually used Blazor? I honestly don't know a single .NET dev that likes Razor (and I know a lot), let alone Blazor.
