Realm has announced Realm .NET, which adds Realm’s mobile data platform to the .NET ecosystem. This will allow developers to create apps on the Microsoft stack. Realm .NET has support for .NET and C# in Realm’s server side framework, and support for the Universal Windows Platform in its synchronization and data encryption technology. It also features a two-way data connector between Realm and SQL Server.
“Developers using Microsoft’s C# and .NET technologies are the fastest growing segment in the Realm community over the last six months, more than doubling the growth of comparable stacks,” said Alexander Stigsen, co-founder and CEO of Realm. “This impressive growth, coupled with the popularity of the .NET stack, made it an easy decision for Realm to further our commitment to Microsoft technologies to make developing and supporting responsive and engaging mobile applications easy for any company, from startups to Fortune 100 market leaders.”
WebAssembly now supported by four major browsers
The latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Edge now include support for the binary file format, WebAssembly, which means that it is now supported by the four major browsers. Now, web developers can be assured that users will be able to run their modules by default without having to make additional changes to make the code run.
“Google, Apple, and Microsoft had all committed to supporting WebAssembly in their browsers. To have that support in market today is a really exciting development,” said Luke Wagner, a Mozilla engineer who worked on the WebAssembly specification.
According to Mozilla, WebAssembly is on its way to becoming an industry standard, and it has been proven to run large, complex apps on the web.
