“Unfortunately several browsers (including Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer) do not support file:// XHR requests, and can’t load extra files needed by the HTML (like a .wasm file, or packaged file data as mentioned lower down). For these browsers you’ll need to serve the files using a local webserver and then open http://localhost:8000/hello.html.”Emscripten SDK has a handy
emrun example_emscripten.html which will spawn a temporary local webserver. See https://emscripten.org/docs/compiling/Running-html-files-with-emrun.html for details.Otherwise you may use Python builtin webserver:
python -m http.server in Python 3 or
python -m SimpleHTTPServer in Python 2. After doing that, you can visit http://localhost:8000/.
- Emscripten 2.0 (August 2020) obsoleted the fastcomp backend, only llvm is supported.
- Emscripten 1.39.0 (October 2019) obsoleted the
BINARYEN_TRAP_MODE=clamp compilation flag which was required with version older than 1.39.0 to avoid rendering artefacts. See #2877 for details. If you use an older version, uncomment this line in the Makefile:
#EMS += -s BINARYEN_TRAP_MODE=clamp
