Prolog in a browser: state of the art?

Looking into building a web application with prolog, I’d like to know:

  • Is the webasm runtime of SWI-Prolog bundled with the official prolog distribution, and if so, where are they located?
  • Is there a “user manual” to get started with SWI-Prolog running in a web browser?
  • What is your experience with prolog in the browser? i.e. is it usable for practical purposes?
    Thanks for any feedback

As is, I doubt it is very usable. It typically builds using emscripten and a recent version of the development source. It is surely the plan to make it a properly supported version. I can’t promise when though. This will only change if someone is serious about getting this to work or we can pay someone to make it work.

Thanks for this feedback.
So, for now, I will have to revert to a more practical solution.
I guess that delegating computations to pengines on my server could be an acceptable choice?
BTW, what would be the cost/effort to a generally available webasm runtime of swipl? And how reliable could this one be?
