⚙️ Native app Support
PlayOS now fully supports WASM that follows the WASI spec. This means that regular applications can be run on PlayOS. We are using the Wasmer (https://wasmer.io/) runtime to achieve this. Through this, we are able to run native applications such as OpenSSL and SQLlite. But there are many more to come. The WASI spec is still under development and currently only supports command-line tools. But support for drawing is coming, and when it does PlayOS will immediately support the spec.
Also, this means you can write your applications in any language available. Such as C#, Java, Python, Rust, etc!
🎨 Web manifest support
We want apps to have a common way of configuring their execution environment while also including information used to display in the store. Web manifest is perfect for this use case. It allows developers to fill in important details about their app, such as the icon and description. So today we’ve added support for the Web manifest spec. You can also easily install a web manifest using the “Install app” in the sidebar nav.
The web manifest also allows you to modify the window color of your app resulting in a more immersive experience.
