Rust Cross-Platform

Open-source Rust projects categorized as Cross-Platform

Top 23 Rust Cross-Platform Projects

  • coreutils

    Cross-platform Rust rewrite of the GNU coreutils

  • Project mention: Cross-platform Rust rewrite of the GNU coreutils | | 2024-01-02

    Not that it should represent the rubicon of when to/not to rewrite code, but when you do, you do trade one set of bugs for a new set of bugs:

  • bottom

    Yet another cross-platform graphical process/system monitor.

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Interesting TUIs (text user interfaces), maybe forgotten ones? | | 2024-05-06

    htop is great, but I've migrated to bottom which has a very similar interface with "btm --basic".


  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • burn

    Burn is a new comprehensive dynamic Deep Learning Framework built using Rust with extreme flexibility, compute efficiency and portability as its primary goals.

  • Project mention: 3 years of fulltime Rust game development, and why we're leaving Rust behind | | 2024-04-26

    You can use libtorch directly via `tch-rs`, and at present I'm porting over to Burn (see which appears incredibly promising. My impression is it's in a good place, if of course not close to the ecosystem of Python/C++. At very least I've gotten my nn models training and running without too much difficulty. (I'm moving to Burn for the thread safety - their `Tensor` impl is `Sync` - libtorch doesn't have such a guarantee.)

    Burn has Candle as one of its backends, which I understand is also quite popular.

  • orbtk

    The Rust UI-Toolkit.

  • cozo

    A transactional, relational-graph-vector database that uses Datalog for query. The hippocampus for AI!

  • Project mention: I'm writing a new vector search SQLite Extension | | 2024-05-02

    Any thoughts on how your project will compare to CozoDB?

  • FlyingCarpet

    Cross-platform AirDrop. File transfer between Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, and Windows over ad hoc WiFi. No network infrastructure required, just two devices with WiFi chips in close range.

  • Project mention: FlyingCarpet: File transfers over ad-hoc WiFi | | 2024-01-21
  • crossterm

    Cross platform terminal library rust

  • Project mention: State of the Terminal | | 2024-05-16

  • notify

    🔭 Cross-platform filesystem notification library for Rust. (by notify-rs)

  • Project mention: Needing Additional Inputs on an Implementation of an Asset Manager with Hot Reloading Support | /r/rust | 2023-08-08

    To support hot reloading, the asset manager definitely has to have some watcher thread, but I have that part dealt with already since I have decided to utilize notify. The other half is to find a way to reload all assets that have changes as determined by the watcher thread. What I am not sure about is how to implement this in a Rustic fashion and with clean architecture while also considering the fact that asset pointers may be held by other objects (such as an object representing an OpenGL program object).

  • spyglass

    A personal search engine: Create a searchable library from your personal documents, interests, and more!

  • Project mention: Spyglass: A Personal Search Engine | | 2024-03-05
  • libpnet

    Cross-platform, low level networking using the Rust programming language.

  • stretch

    High performance flexbox implementation written in rust

  • ludusavi

    Backup tool for PC game saves

  • Project mention: Random Skyrim SE update deleted MO2, 70GB of mods, 100+hour savefile | /r/linux_gaming | 2023-12-11
  • faster

    SIMD for humans (by AdamNiederer)

  • rinf

    Rust for native business logic, Flutter for flexible and beautiful GUI

  • Project mention: slint VS rinf - a user suggested alternative | | 2024-01-24

    I really hope that people try Flutter as Rust's GUI with Rinf. Flutter doesn't involve webview, which is more like native.

  • git-interactive-rebase-tool

    Native cross-platform full feature terminal-based sequence editor for git interactive rebase.

  • Project mention: Amazing git additional tool to install: git-interactive rebase-tool | | 2024-04-24

  • zee

    A modern text editor for the terminal written in Rust

  • Project mention: Micro – A Modern Alternative to Nano | | 2023-08-17
  • kanata

    Improve keyboard comfort and usability with advanced customization

  • Project mention: QMK and Keyboards | | 2024-01-14

    Gotta give a shoutout to kanata[1] which I have used daily for years at this point after giving up on QMK-powered keyboards.

    QMK itself is great, but I was never able to find a non-columnar split ISO keyboard to use it with. Eventually I reluctantly settled on the Logitech K860[2] and I'm now happily using my favourite features from QMK with kanata at the software level.


    [2]: If I'm behind the times and there is now a QMK-compatible keyboard that looks like this, please let me know!

  • goblin

    An impish, cross-platform binary parsing crate, written in Rust (by m4b)

  • freya

    Cross-platform GUI library for 🦀 Rust powered by 🧬 Dioxus and 🎨 Skia.

  • Project mention: Ebou Released 🚀: A (mostly full featured) cross platform desktop Mastodon client written in Rust + Dioxus | /r/rust | 2023-06-16

    Awesome, when it's properly release I'll give it a try with freya (, a skia-based renderer for Dioxus I am making)

  • macchina

    A system information frontend with an emphasis on performance.

  • Project mention: Libraries to read information about GPUs (temperature, load, memory, etc.) | /r/rust | 2023-12-09
  • heim

    Cross-platform async library for system information fetching 🦀
