WebAssembly vs Unison: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Unison? Modern, statically-typed purely functional programming language. It is an open source functional programming language based on a simple idea with big implications: code is content-addressed and immutable.

WebAssembly and Unison can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

Some of the features offered by WebAssembly are:

  • Efficient and fast
  • Safe
  • Open and debuggable

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

  • Statically-typed
  • Next generation programming language
  • Purely functional language

WebAssembly and Unison are both open source tools. It seems that WebAssembly with 3.5K GitHub stars and 352 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Unison with 2.53K GitHub stars and 110 GitHub forks.

        Syncthing
        It is a continuous file synchronization program. It synchronizes files between two or more computers and replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the internet.
        Octave
        It is software featuring a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. Octave helps in solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB.
        JavaScript
        JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
        Python
        Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
