Melon currently provides the following components:

  • Components
    • Library Initialization
    • Configuration
    • Log
    • Error Code Management
    • Memory Pool
    • Thread Pool

Platform Support

Melon was originally written for UNIX systems, so it is suitable for UNIX-like systems such as Linux and MacOS. And there are a few optimizations for Intel CPUs.

At present, Melon has also completed the preliminary porting to Windows, so it can be used on Windows. However, because Windows differs greatly from the UNIX system in the creation process, some functions of the above framework are temporarily not supported in Windows.


You can pull the built container image to deploy the running environment.

docker pull melonc/melon


You should install emsdk at first, make sure emcc and emar have been installed. Then execute:

./configure --enable-wasm
make && make install

There is only one static library libmelon_static.a to be created.


We ❤️ pull requests, and we’re continually working hard to make it as easy as possible for developers to contribute. Before beginning development with the Melon, please familiarize yourself with the following developer resources:
