  • How to cross Compile on Debian for: Mac / FreeBSD / OpenBSD / Android ... ?

    I cross compile to Mac, bsd, windows, etc cross ... Works great for me with either docker or podman.

  • A guide to cross-compilation in Rust
    2 projects | | 1 Jun 2023
    There is some built-in support in rustc for cross-compiling, but getting the build to actually work can be tricky due to the need for an appropriate linker. Instead, we’re going to use the Cross crate, which used to be maintained by the Rust Embedded Working Group Tools group.
  • Is there a definitive guide on cross-compiling with OpenSSL?

    I have used cross before to cross compile from Linux to other Linux. It has a section on it's wiki about this. Maybe that could be of help.
  • Docker ARMv7 Alpine Rust builder
    5 projects | /r/rust | 7 May 2023
    You can use cross to build your application and copy the artifacts into an alpine armv7 container. It would also build faster due to using cross compilation rather than QEMU.
  • Compiling Linux to Mac in CI/CD
    4 projects | /r/rust | 5 May 2023
    Looks like cross is the easiest way to get something cross-compiled but its Mac support is blocked behind building your own build image. Even that repo says that it might be broken.
  • How to you develop in containers?
    2 projects | /r/AskProgramming | 22 Apr 2023
    Bonus: if you’re working with Rust and doing a lot of cross platform stuff, check out cross. It runs QEMU in docker so you can run tests on a bunch of different emulated targets easily- literally a one line setup, it’s kind of magical.
  • What are some stuff that Rust isn't good at?

    It's also not as naturally cross-compilable as Go, though that's partly a side-effect of not accepting being a semi-closed ecosystem to achieve that and cross exists as a stop-gap while things like cargo-zigbuild explore less drastic options.

    Why not use cross? It manages all these dependencies in containers, no effort needed on your part.
  • How does cargo cross work?
    2 projects | /r/rust | 22 Mar 2023
    Following cross docs, I found this in the Wiki about using a remote container engine. The article implies some knowledge which I lack so my question is: what is the use case for that? Would I be able to use toolchain defined in the docker image using those features? bash CROSS_REMOTE=1 cross build --target x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

What are some alternatives?
