Accessing files on the "server side"?

  • I've been considering writing a browser-based front-end for a headless linux-based embedded system in WebAssembly to do things like configure wifi or ethernet ports on the embedded system. This would necessarily mean editing certain files e.g. wpa_supplicant.conf. I've seen a few references to the fact that WebAssembly can't access files directly. So, is it true that I wouldn't be able to modify files on the embedded system?

  • @RogueWarrior no experience with webassembly, but by creating and running a Qt app on the embedded device, you could leverage access via any VNC client using the VNC platform plugin i.e. ./yourQtApp -platform vnc
