​WAPM is a package manager for WebAssembly modules to be used standalone by any WebAssembly Runtime (such as the Wasmer Runtime).
The WAPM ecosystem makes WebAssembly more accessible to developers. The system is enabled by a couple tools:
  • WAPM package registry for storing and serving packages​
  • WAPM package client (called wapm CLI) for installing and managing packages. See the wapm-cli Github Repo​
The wapm tool comes bundled with Wasmer: the WebAssembly runtime, but it works great with the other server-side runtimes and the web!
