  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

  • 23K GitHub stars?! How many more do you need? That's 5 times more than serde and only 2k under from the Vue 3 repo.

  • uniffi-rs

    a multi-language bindings generator for rust

  • Then again it seems it's targeting bindings to managed languages where people are used to "no UB on cross-thread sharing", possibly even at the cost of overhead. I don't like that culture (and prefer Rust's zero-overhead verification or C++'s "trust the programmer"), but I guess I'm not the target audience and there are some people who would appreciate it. And sadly programmers who haven't learned Rust or otherwise "properly" learned threading seem to get it wrong.
