Any sort of plugin engine with dynamic load ability and any limitations?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/rust

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • cglue

    Rust ABI safe code generator

    Shameless plug - you may want to check out cglue, which lets you mix and match rust versions, and even implement plugins in other languages like C++:

  • wasmtime

    A fast and secure runtime for WebAssembly

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • wasmer

    🚀 The leading WebAssembly Runtime supporting WASIX, WASI and Emscripten

  • rust-bindgen

    Automatically generates Rust FFI bindings to C (and some C++) libraries.

    On native, you have to define a C API, probably using a header file. Even if both sides are implemented in Rust, they have to speak that C API (documentation).

  • Cap'n Proto

    Cap'n Proto serialization/RPC system - core tools and C++ library

    This is only possible when you don't need serialization, though. However, just last week I started looking into Cap'n Proto to solve this issue. It's a serialization format that's designed for shared memory and so provides data types that can be used directly with no conversion. There's a full Rust implementation for it.

  • 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.
