Fable vs Emscripten: What are the differences?

What is Fable? F# to JavaScript Compiler. It is a compiler powered by Babel designed to make F# a first-class citizen of the JavaScript ecosystem.

What is Emscripten? An Open Source LLVM to JavaScript compiler. This allows applications and libraries originally designed to run as standard executables to be integrated into client side web applications.

Fable and Emscripten can be categorized as "JavaScript Compilers" tools.

Some of the features offered by Fable are:

  • Functional programming and more
  • Type safety without the hassle
  • Modern Javascript output

On the other hand, Emscripten provides the following key features:

  • Compile C and C++ code into JavaScript
  • Compile any other code that can be translated into LLVM bitcode into JavaScript
  • Compile the C/C++ runtimes of other languages into JavaScript

WebGL
It is integrated completely into all the web standards of the browser allowing GPU accelerated usage of physics and image processing and effects as part of the web page canvas. Its elements can be mixed with other HTML elements.
Modernizr
It’s a collection of superfast tests or detects as we like to call them which run as your web page loads, then you can use the results to tailor the experience to the user. It tells you what HTML, CSS and JavaScript features the user’s browser has to offer.
