Browser API depends on webpack

See original GitHub issue

I tried importing it using const blake3 = await import('') and it failed with Uncaught ReferenceError: exports is not defined. Seems the code is a mix of ES modules and CommonJS modules.

I also tried importing it using Parcel and it failed with Imports argument must be present and must be an object. Checking this issue seems Parcel’s WASM importing behavior is different from webpack’s. Then, after, I tried importing it using webpack, it worked.

Is there a way to make it not dependent on webpack behavior?

I’ve fixed this in

There’s now a new import, blake3/browser-async, that exports an function which returns a promise that resolves to the module.

import load from 'blake3/browser-async';

load().then(blake3 => {
  console.log(blake3.hash('hello world'));

I expanded the integration tests to test both Webpack and a plain <script type="module"> import.

I’ll look into this some more this evening most likely.
