PowerShell vs WebAssembly: What are the differences?

PowerShell: A task automation and configuration management framework. A command-line shell and scripting language built on .NET. Helps system administrators and power-users rapidly automate tasks that manage operating systems (Linux, macOS, and Windows) and processes; WebAssembly: A binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine. It is an open standard that defines a portable binary code format for executable programs, and a corresponding textual assembly language, as well as interfaces for facilitating interactions between such programs and their host environment.

PowerShell can be classified as a tool in the "Shells" category, while WebAssembly is grouped under "Languages".

Some of the features offered by PowerShell are:

  • Windows PowerShell Workflow
  • Windows PowerShell Web Access.
  • Support for .NET 4.0

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

  • Efficient and fast
  • Safe
  • Open and debuggable

WebAssembly is an open source tool with 3.49K GitHub stars and 347 GitHub forks. Here's a link to WebAssembly's open source repository on GitHub.

Chartboost, Reflect, and Leafly are some of the popular companies that use PowerShell, whereas WebAssembly is used by Cubbit, NeosIT GmbH, and IHMC. PowerShell has a broader approval, being mentioned in 308 company stacks & 138 developers stacks; compared to WebAssembly, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
