I need help understanding the Bridge Translator's code
However, Bridge seems pretty much dead. Unfortunately. Especially with the rise of Blazor, although a different approach from a technical perspective.
OK, from what I understand Rewrite
uses Roslyn to rewrite newer C# features into compatible code
so that NRefactory can handle it?
Can Bridge have two simultaneous outputs if I tinker with the .csproj properly?

Is retyped open source?
@guidovanhilst Retyped is not open-source.
I love bridge.net. I have used blazor and bridge on my website and I have had far less trouble with bridge than blazor. All I need is my .net code to be able to be used on the web. I found that Blazor seems like overkill for most of things I need. Does anyone know if there is a way to compile c# to wasm without using blazor? I'd love to just have that as a tool without all the extra overhead, such as components, dealing with navigation, etc... in blazor.
@chrisevans9629 Cool. Thanks for the awesome feedback.
@chrisevans9629 There is some working going on for direction compilation for C# to WASM. See here dotnet/aspnetcore#5466
However, it seems somewhat outdated already. I don't know what the current status is of this project
I guess a big challenge is the lack of garbage collection in web assembly which makes C# a not so ideal candidate for that matter. Blazor on the other hand works by completely emulating the CLR in the Browser. This means they can use their own garbage collection.
