🕸️🐪 Welcome to WebPerl!

WebPerl uses the power of WebAssembly and Emscripten to let you run Perl 5 in the browser!

WebPerl does not translate your Perl code to JavaScript, instead, it is a port of the perl binary to WebAssembly, so that you have the full power of Perl at your disposal!

Notice: WebPerl is very much in beta. Some things may not work yet, and parts of the API may still change. Your feedback is always appreciated!

<script src="webperl.js"></script>
<script type="text/perl">

print "Hello, Perl World!\n";  # goes to JavaScript console by default

js('document')->getElementById('my_button')
	->addEventListener('click', sub {
		js('window')->alert("You clicked the button!");
	} );
</script>

For a web application written with WebPerl, see the WebPerl Regex Tester (beta)!

Quick Start

You may also host the contents of the above ZIP archive on a webserver of your choice, as described in Using WebPerl. (Note: In webperl_demo.html, you’ll likely see “AJAX Failed!”, which is to be expected since your webserver won’t know how to handle the example AJAX request.)

Have fun! ️🐪
