How To Install wasm-as on Fedora 34

In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install wasm-as on Fedora 34 using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update wasm-as as well.

One-liner Install Command

If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:

sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install binaryen
or if you use dnf:
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install binaryen

But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.

What is wasm-as and How to Install It?

First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.

Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.

There are several ways to install wasm-as on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):

In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.

Install wasm-as on Fedora 34 using dnf

First, update dnf packages database with dnf by running the next command:

sudo dnf makecache --refresh

After updating database, You can install wasm-as using dnf by running the following command:

sudo dnf -y install binaryen

Install wasm-as on Fedora 34 using yum

Because wasm-as is available in Fedora 34’s default repositories, it is possible to install it from these repositories using the yum packaging system.

To begin, update local packages database with yum using the following command.

sudo yum makecache --refresh

Now can install wasm-as package on your server/computer by running the following command:

sudo yum -y install binaryen

How to upgrade (update) a single package wasm-as using yum?

To update all the packages available on the system:

yum update

If you want to update a specific package like wasm-as in this example you should use the following command:

yum update binaryen

To downgrade a package to an earlier version:

yum downgrade binaryen

How to Upgrade wasm-as on Fedora 34 with dnf?

When you run the dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated. However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as the argument to the dnf update command.

dnf update binaryen

How To remove wasm-as from Fedora 34

To uninstall only the wasm-as package you can execute the following command:

sudo dnf remove binaryen

Extra info and code examples

Binaryen is a compiler and toolchain infrastructure library for WebAssembly, written in C++. It aims to make compiling to WebAssembly easy, fast, and effective: * Easy: Binaryen has a simple C API in a single header, and can also be used from JavaScript. It accepts input in WebAssembly-like form but also accepts a general control flow graph for compilers that prefer that. * Fast: Binaryen's internal IR uses compact data structures and is designed for completely parallel codegen and optimization, using all available CPU cores. Binaryen's IR also compiles down to WebAssembly extremely easily and quickly because it is essentially a subset of WebAssembly. * Effective: Binaryen's optimizer has many passes that can improve code very significantly (e.g. local coloring to coalesce local variables; dead code elimination; precomputing expressions when possible at compile time; etc.). These optimizations aim to make Binaryen powerful enough to be used as a compiler backend by itself. One specific area of focus is on WebAssembly-specific optimizations (that general-purpose compilers might not do), which you can think of as wasm minification , similar to minification for JavaScript, CSS, etc., all of which are language-specific (an example of such an optimization is block return value generation in SimplifyLocals).


You now have a full guide on how to install wasm-as using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall the wasm-as from Fedora 34.
