    Project mention: Include diagrams in your Markdown files with Mermaid | The GitHub Blog | | 2022-09-19

    Project mention: Do you think is it worth to learn gtk4 to use it with rust? | | 2022-11-12

    Depending on the scale of your project, I could suggest rui library which is cross platform though it's not related to gtk,, It's inspired by swiftUI

  • lopdf

    A Rust library for PDF document manipulation.

    Project mention: How to convert SVGs containing text to a PDF? | | 2023-01-24

    I then came up with the genius idea of exporting the PDF using Inkscape and then just edit the text of the PDF, but using lopdf the text is all stacked ontop of each other. How can I simply convert a SVG to PDF using Rust or change the text of a PDF using Rust?

  • fltk-rs

    Project mention: Hey Rustaceans! Got a question? Ask here (4/2023)! | | 2023-01-23


  • luminance-rs

    I've made a simple multi-threaded heightmap generator using egui and three_d. Both have been really easy to use despite a few limitations.

  • rend3

    Easy to use, customizable, efficient 3D renderer library built on wgpu.

    Project mention: Which graphics crate do you use? | | 2022-11-22

    I personally use Rend3, ability to use WGPU to make my own render effects, but I still get to build my own engine around it, although I'm waiting for the vertex-pulling branch to be merged before I really get going

  • rust-sloth

    A 3D software rasterizer... for the terminal!

  • printpdf

    An easy-to-use library for writing PDF in Rust
