In addition to the embedding API which allows you to use Wasmtime as a
library, the Wasmtime project also provides a
wasmtime CLI tool to conveniently
execute WebAssembly modules from the command line.
This section will provide a guide to the
wasmtime CLI and major functionality
that it contains. In short, however, you can execute a WebAssembly file
(actually doing work as part of the
start function) like so:
$ wasmtime foo.wasm
Or similarly if you want to invoke a "start" function, such as with WASI modules, you can execute
$ wasmtime --invoke _start foo.wasm
For more information be sure to check out how to install the CLI, the list of options you can pass, and how to enable logging.
