    Safe Rust wrapper for the libctru C library

    for 3DS there is already a way more complete port with a safe wrapper available here https://github.com/rust3ds/ctru-rs

  • libnds-rs

    The source code is available there https://github.com/SeleDreams/libnds-rs

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • libctr-rs

    Have you had any thoughts of porting the C lib to rust rather than a safe wrapper around the bindings? It would be a rather unsafe lib at first but could keep it all Rust. Just an idea though, safe wrappers are always good! Here is an example of an unofficial 3ds port.

  • gba

    A crate that helps you make GBA games

    Are you aware of https://github.com/rust-console/gba ?

  • rusty-TONC

    Having fun on the GBA, and porting TONC's examples.

  • Arduboy

    Core library for the Arduboy.

    I'd suggest something like https://www.arduboy.com/ although I'm not sure anyone has got Rust working well with it.

  • libnds

    C library for Nintendo DS

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • c-of-time

    Environment for injecting code into PMD: Explorers of Sky

    That's really interesting. I've used a tools to write code on ds before, for injecting code in a game thanks to Rust Of Darkness, and I have to say it was quite pleasant (even thought it didn't totally avoided assembly, it was now just putting some calue in some register then call the Rust functions. Definitively better than just assembly. Or C.). Maybe your tool have some usefull stuff that'll interest the author. I'll share this with him (assuming he didn't found this yet). Also, here is the tools, in case you're curious. https://github.com/skytemple/c-of-time/tree/main/rust

  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

    This is the PR that added the tier 3 target: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/88529

  • ironds

    System for developing for the Nintendo DS with Rust

    nice! I'm working on my own Rust-on-DS project here: https://github.com/QuinnPainter/ironds, some of it may be useful to you? Mine is aiming to be an all-Rust toolchain rather than libnds bindings. I've also added tier 3 targets to the compiler (armv5te-none-eabi and thumbv5te-none-eabi) that you could possibly use?
