  • [media] I spent time porting rust to the Nntendo DS

    Have you had any thoughts of porting the C lib to rust rather than a safe wrapper around the bindings? It would be a rather unsafe lib at first but could keep it all Rust. Just an idea though, safe wrappers are always good! Here is an example of an unofficial 3ds port.

    The other is a unofficial and only on github crate that is an almost full Rust implementation of libctru that allows for more control but utilizes a lot more unsafe because of system calls. This still includes some bindings from the original library. It can be found here.
