The "WebAssembly in Action" GitHub Repository

Last week, I created a GitHub repository for the original code from my book "WebAssembly in Action".

One of the tools used in the book is the Emscripten toolkit and, when the book went to print, the version used by the book was 1.38.45. Because the toolkit it constantly being improved, some of the items shown in the book need to be adjusted if you want to use a more recent version of Emscripten.

I updated the liveBook version of my book with comments explaining the workarounds when things needed to be adjusted but it didn't feel like enough.

Over the past week, whenever I could find a spare moment, I updated the original code to work with the latest version of Emscripten. Today I'm pleased to announce that the GitHub repository now has an updated-code folder with the book's code adjusted to work with Emscripten 2.0.0!
