In-browser backend?

Hi! Has there been any work in having a fully in-browser backend, possibly with a more limited set of features (no terminal, emulated file system, etc)? Specifically, the use case I’m considering is: I have a programming language’s compiler/LSP server compiled to wasm and I want a fully in-browser editor to go with it, without needing a full cloud linux instance.

I don’t think so, but the yaml config editor in the latest OpenShift console consists of the LS from VS Code-YAML hooked up to a monaco instances. It’s pretty straightforward, I think.

Theia needs backend. In theory it is possible to rewrite each remote service with local, but it is a lot of work and then you have to maintain.
