Snappy UIs with WebAssembly and Web Workers

In this web content, the author discusses how they have implemented snappy user interfaces (UIs) in their web app using WebAssembly and Web Workers. They explain that WebAssembly allows developers to use low-level code in a binary format, resulting in faster execution than JavaScript alone. They specifically utilize AssemblyScript, which allows them to write high-level code in TypeScript. The author highlights the use of Web Workers to run computationally intensive tasks in separate threads, ensuring that the UI remains responsive. They also discuss the use of a worker pool to handle multiple parallel tasks efficiently. The author concludes by expressing their excitement about using these web technologies and invites readers to try out their app, Mofi. No controversial or surprising information is present in the content.
