  • Rust-for-Linux

    Adding support for the Rust language to the Linux kernel. (by Rust-for-Linux)

    Project mention: The Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-01

    Ctrl-F "rust"

    https://rust-for-linux.com/ links to LWN articles at https://lwn.net/Kernel/Index/#Development_tools-Rust that suggest that only basic modules are yet possible with the rust support in Linux kernels 6.2 and 6.3.

    Rust-for-linux links to the Android binder module though:

    > Android Binder Driver: This project is an effort to rewrite Android's Binder kernel driver in Rust.

    > Motivation: Binder is one of the most security and performance critical components of Android. Android isolates apps from each other and the system by assigning each app a unique user ID (UID). This is called "application sandboxing", and is a fundamental tenet of the Android Platform Security Model.

    > The majority of inter-process communication (IPC) on Android goes through Binder. Thus, memory unsafety vulnerabilities are especially critical when they happen in the Binder driver

    ... "Rust in the Linux kernel" (2021) https://security.googleblog.com/2021/04/rust-in-linux-kernel... :

    > [...] We also need designs that allow code in the two languages to interact with each other: we're particularly interested in safe, zero-cost abstractions that allow Rust code to use kernel functionality written in C, and how to implement functionality in idiomatic Rust that can be called seamlessly from the C portions of the kernel.

    > Since Rust is a new language for the kernel, we also have the opportunity to enforce best practices in terms of documentation and uniformity. For example, we have specific machine-checked requirements around the usage of unsafe code: for every unsafe function, the developer must document the requirements that need to be satisfied by callers to ensure that its usage is safe; additionally, for every call to unsafe functions (or usage of unsafe constructs like dereferencing a raw pointer), the developer must document the justification for why it is safe to do so.

    > We'll now show how such a driver would be implemented in Rust, contrasting it with a C implementation. [...]

    This guide with unsafe rust that calls into the C, and then with next gen much safer rust right next to it would be a helpful resource too.

    What of the post-docker container support (with userspaces also written in go) should be cloned to rust first?

  • InfluxDB

  • msquic

    Cross-platform, C implementation of the IETF QUIC protocol, exposed to C, C++, C# and Rust.

    Project mention: Avoiding HTTP/3 (for a while) as a pragmatic default | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-02

    I referred to sockets as an API design, not to express an opinion on whether you should place your protocol implementations inside or outside the kernel. (Although that’s undeniably an interesting question that by all rights should have been settled by now, but isn’t.)

    Even then, I didn’t mean you should reproduce the Berkeley socket API verbatim (ZeroMQ-style); multiple streams per connection does not sound like a particularly good fit to it (although apparently people have managed to fit SCTP into it[1]?). I only meant that with the current mainstream libraries[2,3,4], establishing a QUIC connection and transmitting bytestreams or datagrams over it seems quite a bit more involved than performing the equivalent TCP actions using sockets.

  • tectonic

    A modernized, complete, self-contained TeX/LaTeX engine, powered by XeTeX and TeXLive.

    Project mention: [Media] Version 0.3 of Inlyne - An interactive markdown renderer written entirely in Rust | reddit.com/r/rust | 2023-05-07

    There's https://github.com/tectonic-typesetting/tectonic but I think the issue with that idea is that sure, you can re-implement TeX (it's sufficiently simple) in Rust and then run LaTeX packages on top of it, but then you're back to LaTeX and all its weirdness so you haven't really gained anything compared to LaTeX itself.

  • libsql

    libSQL is a fork of SQLite that is both Open Source, and Open Contributions.

    Project mention: SQLite builds for WASI since 3.41.0 | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-24


    To summarize, instead of using one of the OSS licenses, the copyright holders simply declare the source to be in the public domain. In order to preserve that status they don't accept patches unless you submit some signed document that you agree with that.

    To make things more complicated, they also use their a relatively niche version management system instead of git. Which would complicate making contributions (if they accepted them).

    There's a popular fork that fixes all of these issues: https://github.com/libsql/libsql It is MIT licensed, on Github, and open for contributions.

    Kind of a weird legal situation for a popular project like this that so many people depend on to have. Not judging; but it is odd. Seems like a lot of wasted efforts between users, would be contributors, and the people that forked this thing to address all that.

  • rust-cfitsio

    FFI wrapper around cfitsio in Rust

    Project mention: astro-rs: Attempting to port astropy to Rust | reddit.com/r/rust | 2022-07-26

    Yes, I should have mentioned one of the goals is pure Rust - I started in a Windows dev environment, and never could get projects like https://github.com/mindriot101/rust-fitsio to run natively; for now I’m hoping to maintain the cross-platform flexibility for this project, but I’ll definitely look into Marlu more, if it provides enough benefit, it’s easy enough to add that constraint
