  • Write SDK “base” in Rust, wrap in other languages?
    11 projects | /r/rust | 31 Mar 2023
    For example, they list PyO3 for Python (see also maturin for packaging), NAPI-RS for Node.js, and Rutie for Ruby.
  • Magnus: High level Ruby bindings for Rust
    3 projects | /r/rust | 21 Apr 2022
    If this sounds useful you should also take a look at rutie, another library that does the same thing and has been around longer.
  • Magnus: Ruby bindings for Rust
    5 projects | /r/ruby | 2 Apr 2022
    I'm not the first person to have this idea, there's also the great rutie. I make no claims that Magnus is any better, it's just my attempt at it.
  • Does rust have function works like eval?
    9 projects | /r/rust | 19 Aug 2021
    hlua or rlua are what you want for Lua, rust-cpython or PyO3 for Python, rutie for Ruby, and possibly deno_core for JavaScript.
  • Need some advice with integrating ruby scripting into my my project
    2 projects | /r/rust | 29 Jul 2021
    I was at first using mrusty, then I switched to rutie, because I thought mrusty didn't support blocks (it does, it's just he documentation for it is easily missed, it's in the docs for the for the mrfn! macro, right near the bottom of the page), so I'm switching back (haven't yet started on this redo) because it has what I want & it's easier to use.
  • Advantages of building a CRUD web application in Rust?
    7 projects | /r/rust | 7 Feb 2021
    If writing the whole API in Rust is too big of a sell for your employer, I highly recommend checking out rutie or helix (running native rust modules from ruby).
  • New book! Refactoring to Rust
    2 projects | /r/rust | 7 Jan 2021
    Helix (https://github.com/tildeio/helix) is deprecated though. The only candidate alive enough seems to be Rutie (https://github.com/danielpclark/rutie). At least you don't risk putting people in the wrong direction! I think I will buy the book, from skimming it seems cool!

What are some alternatives?

When comparing evcxr and rutie you can also consider the following projects:

vscode-jupyter - VS Code Jupyter extension

Helix - Native Ruby extensions without fear

polars - Fast multi-threaded, hybrid-out-of-core DataFrame library in Rust | Python | Node.js

Ruru - Native Ruby extensions written in Rust

rust-script - Run Rust files and expressions as scripts without any setup or compilation step.

jupyter-rust - a docker container for jupyter notebooks for rust

bincode - A binary encoder / decoder implementation in Rust.

cargo-script - Cargo script subcommand

vim-slime - A vim plugin to give you some slime. (Emacs)

ToCollection - Treat an array of objects and a singular object uniformly as a collection of objects. Especially useful in processing REST Web Service API JSON responses in a functional approach.

magnus - Ruby bindings for Rust. Write Ruby extension gems in Rust, or call Ruby from Rust.
