    Rust audio playback library

    I'm currently working on creating a desktop app with web UI using Yew, and Tauri for the desktop packaging side of things. In this particular case, I'd like to be able to play audio files from the user's local filesystem using the rodio crate, and also to process text files for purposes such as configuration, for example by using the csv. I know for absolute certain that the app will only be run in a desktop context, i.e, Window, Linux and MacOS, and therefore will always have a filesystem physically existent despite any WASM sandboxing (which I'm aware of, hence asking for any possible methods).
