    Project mention: [AskJS] Why there is so much hatred toward using Javascript on the Backend for C#/Java and others tech stack programmer ? Is it performance alone ? Do you consider yourself a full stack senior JS dev ? | | 2021-11-14

    Project mention: Rust Is the Future of JavaScript Infrastructure | | 2021-11-11

    Author here. A few other Rust projects to note that I didn't mention in the original post I've since found:

    - Boa (JS engine in Rust) –

    - RSLint (JS/TS linter in Rust) –

    - Node version manager in Rust –

    If you know of any other popular ones, let me know. I'm keeping a list :)

    Record Query - A tool for doing record analysis and transformation (by dflemstr)

    Project mention: Miller CLI – Like Awk, sed, cut, join, and sort for CSV, TSV and JSON | | 2021-08-24

    There's also rq (record query)[1] that also supports CSV and JSON but not TSV though. It's written in Rust.


  • GitHub repo napi-rs

    A minimal library for building compiled Node.js add-ons in Rust via Node-API

    Project mention: Rust Is the Future of JavaScript Infrastructure | | 2021-11-11

    I've been using NAPI-RS to bridge from Electron Rust and it's been nice - I believe SWC uses it behind the scenes.

    They just put out an alpha release that makes it way more ergonomic to write Rust functions that interop with JS, too. There's a small example of it in the README:

    NAPI isn't as well-known in the JS-to-Rust bindings world (Neon [1] is the more well-known library but it seems to be gaining steam.

  • GitHub repo tangram

    Tangram makes it easy for programmers to train, deploy, and monitor machine learning models.

    Project mention: Examples of Rust front-end web works | | 2021-11-07

    We are using Rust for our web application and website at Tangram. You can view the source here: The website is at We decided to write our own web framework because we needed server rendering and we wanted to use the builder pattern in creating components. Here is an example component for our Logo to get a sense of what this looks like:

  • GitHub repo deno_lint

  • GitHub repo dprint

    Pluggable and configurable code formatting platform written in Rust.

    Project mention: dprint: A pluggable and configurable code formatting platform written in Rust | | 2021-10-18
  • GitHub repo astro

    A fun safe language for rapid prototyping and high performance applications (by astrolang)

    Project mention: First batch of PRs | | 2021-10-14

    I have tried figuring out what the project even was - it was in Astro. After some googling and reading I figured out.... I better not go deeper. It's some kind of a niche language, which may even be fun and great, but isn't used most of the time and isn't even finished. So even if I have learned it (which would be hard, considering no documentation), I wouldn't be able to transfer my skills as easily to another project, since chances are - it's not in Astro.

  • GitHub repo moonfire-nvr

    Moonfire NVR, a security camera network video recorder

    Project mention: What's everyone working on this week (47/2021)? | | 2021-11-22

    Project mention: Volt - A rust-based package manager that's up to 12x faster than Yarn | | 2021-08-05

    The best part? Volt is open source! If you would like to support Volt development or find the project interesting, a ⭐ would be hugely appreciated!

  • GitHub repo serde-wasm-bindgen

    Native integration of Serde with wasm-bindgen

    Project mention: Rust/Wasm on AWS [email protected] | | 2021-03-15

    Some transformation overhead can be addressed by using serde-wasm-bindgen, but in my example repo I'll use it only for the input side (deserialization). On serialization a collection like HashMap or BTreeMap gets turned into an ES2015 Map, which is unfortunated as well, because they cannot be JSON stringified.

  • GitHub repo mine.js

    :earth_asia: A voxel engine built with JS/TS/RS. (formerly mc.js) (maybe mine.ts? or even

    Project mention: How can a newbie coder build there own voxel game with THREE.js? | | 2021-08-04

  • GitHub repo Boop-GTK

    Port of @IvanMathy's Boop to GTK, a scriptable scratchpad for developers.

    Project mention: Wrong font on Boop-GTK | | 2021-04-16

    I just installed Boop-GTK and the font is wrong. The app is supposed to use a monospaced font, but mine looks like this which is clearly wrong. I looked at the documentation and couldn't find anything when it came to fonts. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

  • GitHub repo livesplit-core

    livesplit-core is a library that provides a lot of functionality for creating a speedrun timer.

    Project mention: Need help compiling a program from sourcecode. | | 2021-04-05
  • GitHub repo bast

    :monkey: Web analytics focusing on privacy and simplicity.

    Project mention: Matomo, an open source analytics platform, GDPR and CCPA compliant | | 2021-01-05

    It's pretty easy to make your own analytics. It's not famous, but I open-sourced mine; it's called Bast, written mostly in Rust, and it's easy to deploy it.
