Is Rust good for writing a web extension where performance is the priority?

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

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo ffmpeg.wasm

    FFmpeg for browser and node, powered by WebAssembly

    For context something like https://github.com/ffmpegwasm/ffmpeg.wasm is an ideal usage of wasm in browser. Other uses have included cryptomining with wasm but that is a more nefarious case.

  • GitHub repo egui

    egui: an easy-to-use immediate mode GUI in pure Rust

    One exception is egui which uses wasm/webgl rendering so it largely bypasses most/all traditional html/css/js interactions.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.
