How to use high performance Wasm runtime WasmEdge as a sidecar application runtime for Dapr
Dapr is a versatile framework for building microservices. WebAssembly VMs, such as WasmEdge, provide high-performance and secure runtimes for microservice applications. WebAssembly-based microservices can be written in a number of programming languages, including Rust, C/C++, Swift, and JavaScript. WebAssembly programs are embedded into Dapr sidecar applications, and hence can be portable and agnostic to the Dapr host environment. The WasmEdge SDK provides an easy way to build microservices for Tensorflow inference.
