Welcome to AssemblyLift

Hello! Welcome to the AssemblyLift documentation.

AssemblyLift is an open platform for building serverless cloud applications, with an emphasis on ease-of-use and safety.

The platform currently consists of:

  • The AssemblyLift CLI

  • The AssemblyLift Runtime

  • The AssemblyLift IO Module Registry

  • The AssemblyLift Rust Language SDK

The AssemblyLift Runtime is powered by the open-source Wasmer Runtime, which provides an execution environment for WebAssembly (WASM).

Using WASM means we can theoretically write our applications in any programming language which can be compiled to WASM (and use a common, consistent runtime for each). Currently the Rust programming language is supported, but more are to follow.

How It Works

  1. Write applications in TOML and Rust

  2. Compile your code to Terraform HCL and WebAssembly with the AssemblyLift CLI

  3. Use the AssemblyLift CLI to deploy the infrastructure, runtime, and compiled WASM with a single command
