  • Cyberdeck - A simple high-level library for webrtc data channels
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-14
    I thought i'd share a library that's inspiring some mad science for me based off the amazing work of https://webrtc.rs/. I wanted to make it as dead simple as possible to setup a data channel with a web page.

    One of the webrtc.rs contributor is also a pion.ly contributor, and the other two describe themselves as gophers/rustaceans. So I'm sure that this rewrite has better motivations than "Go bad, Rust good".
