  • Playing MPR with genuine mouse control!
    2 projects | /r/yuzu | 17 Feb 2023
    Luckily after tons of searching I found a obscure bare-bones program with a whopping zero documentation called Pad Motion, which seems to be the ONLY mouse-to-motion solution for cemuhook. It works, but the sensitivity is way too high and the x axis is inverted. Unfortunately the program has absolutely no customizability, so you're stuck with what it gives you. Plus Yuzu has no ability to invert motion controls and MPR lacks the feature as well.

  • What is the best API generator for Axum?
    2 projects | /r/rust | 9 Apr 2023
    I've used FastAPI/Pydantic before as well and it was a very good experience. It has been a while since I used them though, so I forget exactly how they compare, but I do recall it wrote most of the OpenAPI spec. for you. I will also agree when I saw utoipa and aide they seemed to require more boilerplate even though I have not done an actual comparison. Poem, on the other hand, seems very neat and clean and doesn't have any duplication that I can see. Here is the [TODO example](

    If OpenAPI is important, then you may to consider instead of axum. It isn't nearly as widely used, but it should still be compatible with everything else.

    If one were to undertake a project of developing something like this, which is the best web framework for it. I did some cursory research and discovered these back-end frameworks - actix, axum, poem, salvo, warp, gotham and rocket.

    The core is a rust web server and we provide the Web front end, Android and iOS front end We have made the above repos public and will potentially make the whole server open-source in the future, yet we want to let personal/community use for free and charge business usages--any of you have experience in the OCC startup area? We are now all engineers and are looking for new team members as well.
