Binary dependencies

Is it possible to include binary dependencies in the program? Or would that not work because they cannot be compiled to WASM?

I would like to include the client code of the Coda Protocol so my Holochain nodes could verify payment receipts and issue currency based on them.

@ldwm at the moment your best bet would be to treat this as a deployment/distribution problem

i.e. simply ship the additional binaries you need on the PATH somehow with your application, and then have some glue to send data between your binary and holochain via websockets

as you noted, this is because all happ code is wasm

in the future we plan to make the conductor more extensible so that the wasm could be aware of backing services if they register themselves somehow with the running conductor
