Top 23 Rust Window Projects

  • alacritty

    A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.

    Project mention: I'm going to spend my day off installing Arch. | | 2022-01-27

    So here I make any window titled "notepad" floating and of a certain size. Making it sticky makes it appear on all workspaces. for_window [title="notepad"] floating enable for_window [title="notepad"] sticky enable for_window [title="notepad"] resize set 500 400 Then I can launch a terminal emulator with a text editor with the title "notepad" like this: bindsym $mod+n exec alacritty -t notepad -e=micro I use Alacritty as my terminal emulator and Micro as my terminal editor.

  • windows-rs

    Rust for Windows

    Project mention: How to use C++ HANDLE event | | 2022-01-25

    Microsoft created a language agnostic metadata project for the Windows api to auto-generate language bindings for it. The language bindings for Rust are generated with it for example. One big advantage with them is, that instead of a #define, the types such as HANDLE, etc. are indeed real types wrapping a void* (or a int, or whatever). So it's much harder to pass the wrong type and IDEs give much more helpful type information.

    Well, here's the bug report:

  • heim

    Cross-platform async library for system information fetching 🦀

    Project mention: Writing a simple Raspberry Pi system monitor in Rust | | 2021-06-21

    Heh, I was worried a heim maintainer would see that. Looking at the comparison page provided by heim, it seems like the feature I was missing was probably support for gathering temperature data. Though digging into the documentation some more, assuming I'm interpreting it correctly, it looks like temperature is actually supported, contrary to what the comparison page says. Maybe support was added recently, or that comparison page is just out of date?

    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?
