Someone recently told me about Emscripten. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Either way, I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I dusted off a very simple Mandelbrot fractal viewer I hacked up a few years ago to see if Emscripten could make it run in a browser.
Did it work? Well, see for yourself.
As a hack, it’s pretty amusing. As a serious development tool, well … I just hope they’re not serious.
