  • freebsd-src

    The FreeBSD src tree publish-only repository. Experimenting with 'simple' pull requests....

  • gitoxide

    An idiomatic, lean, fast & safe pure Rust implementation of Git

  • But I'd suggest joining an existing project instead. This week in Rust has a call for participation section each week. There are also some exciting rewrites like arti, gitoxide, fish, and a steady stream of projects announced in this sub.

  • signrs

  • I'm writing a Rust digital signage player very heavily influenced by info-beamer, with a focus more on local intranet control: https://github.com/superlou/signrs. You develop a signage application in JavaScript with drawing functions, and the player runs it cross-platform (including Raspberry Pi), and provides a web server for remote control.

  • inox2d

    Native Rust reimplementation of Inochi2D

  • I'm writing Inox2D, which is kind of a rewrite of Inochi2D in Rust. The aim is to reach more use-cases such as web with WASM and even potentially embedded development, but at the very least an implementation in a low-level non-garbage-collected language.

  • rich

    Rich is a Python library for rich text and beautiful formatting in the terminal.

  • I am not rewriting anything but I'd love to have a library like `rich` in Rust: https://github.com/textualize/rich

  • Tink

    Discontinued Tink is a multi-language, cross-platform, open source library that provides cryptographic APIs that are secure, easy to use correctly, and hard(er) to misuse.

  • I sort of rewrote google's tink project in rust. There is already a rust version by project oak but it didn't exactly jive.

    The crate is named navajo after the code talkers of WW2. It isn't stable yet (still in version 0.0.x) and isn't wire compatible with tink as I took some liberties to change the way it processes online/streaming AEAD.
