    Project mention: Hey Rustaceans! Got a question? Ask here (20/2023)! | | 2023-05-15

  • swift-bridge

    swift-bridge facilitates Rust and Swift interop.

    Project mention: macOS Apps in Rust | | 2023-05-13

    Rust Bindings for the iOS UIKit Objective-C framework

    Project mention: floui: a gui crate for mobile, inspired by swiftui, wrapping native widgets. A proof of concept | | 2022-07-13

    With uikit-sys, the build is very slow as it's all generated from bindgen and includes uikit as well as any of the framework dependencies required for it. I'm yet to figure out how to reduce how much stuff is generated as well as a reasonable way to wrap it in safe rust and ensure there's no memory leaks.

    I found this project: but for Windows, it convert the yaml input into a klc file to be used with MKLC, so it won't work for me.
