To help me grok the challenge of AS -> WebAssembly, I have stripped down
the transpiler to the bare minimum. This means that any tooling or
framework integration is basically excluded. The first priority must be to
get 'vanilla' AS to produce valid WAST code. At best that'll be months of
work, but seeing as I still have to learn WASM in depth, I'm sure there are
going to be some bumps in the road ;-)

I think that once there is a fair level of fidelity in the transpilation,
we can start to think about building/integrating UI frameworks with this
transpiler. I have some ideas that got snowed under when we started work on
asjs I'd like to try out. Think GCC compatible ES6 Material Design, with a
glue libraries for communication between WASM and JavaScript code.
Something like that.
