Package description

What is @webassemblyjs/ast?

The @webassemblyjs/ast package is a toolchain for WebAssembly manipulation which allows you to parse, validate, and generate WebAssembly code. It provides an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) representation of WebAssembly modules, enabling programmatic analysis and transformation of Wasm code.

What are @webassemblyjs/ast's main functionalities?

Parsing WebAssembly binary

This feature allows you to parse a WebAssembly binary into an AST. The code sample demonstrates how to use the wasm-parser submodule to decode a binary representation of a WebAssembly module.

"use strict";\nconst { decode } = require('@webassemblyjs/wasm-parser');\nconst binary = new Uint8Array([0x00, 0x61, 0x73, 0x6d, ...]);\nconst ast = decode(binary);\nconsole.log(ast);

Generating WebAssembly binary

This feature enables you to generate a WebAssembly binary from an AST. The code sample shows how to create an empty WebAssembly module using the ast submodule and then encode it into a binary with wasm-gen.

"use strict";\nconst { encode } = require('@webassemblyjs/wasm-gen');\nconst t = require('@webassemblyjs/ast');\nconst module = t.module([], []);\nconst binary = encode(module);\nconsole.log(new Uint8Array(binary));

Traversing and modifying the AST

This feature is for traversing the AST and applying modifications. The code sample illustrates how to traverse an existing AST and log each ModuleImport node encountered.

"use strict";\nconst { traverse } = require('@webassemblyjs/ast');\nconst ast = ...; // Assume this is an existing AST\ntraverse(ast, {\n  ModuleImport(path) {\n    console.log(path.node);\n  }\n});
