Web Assembly graphics programmers hello world
As a old C++ programmer it is very compelling to write your code and test it nativly and using Emscripten you can publish and use your code directly on the web.
But there is a learning curve to everything so to make a relevant and fun “Hello World” Application. That actually uses some Cpu power i decided to do a Wolfenstein Ray Casting demo. This is a cool an relativly easy technique and there are interesting design choice where to devide the computation between Java script and Web Assembly (c++).
Ray Casting Algorithm
The basic idea is to render a 2.5D image like in wolfenstein, where each collumn of the final image.
