Rust OpenCV - Simple Guide

  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • JetBrains - Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022
  • Ray

    An open source framework that provides a simple, universal API for building distributed applications. Ray is packaged with RLlib, a scalable reinforcement learning library, and Tune, a scalable hyperparameter tuning library.

    I'd really want use Rust+OpenCV instead of Python+OpenCV to process a lot of images (xxxxxx pieces on a central NAS). I would want to do it by also splitting the work over multiple worker nodes for speed. Unfortunately, I've so far not had the time to figure this out... Meanwhile, a Rust API for Ray is being worked on!

  • opencv-rust

    Rust bindings for OpenCV 3 & 4

    I thought it was going to be unsafe because of how Mat is implemented (more information here). ... I tested it and it should be fine memory-wise. My thought was that the code below was going to be allowed to compile.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • cv

    Rust CV mono-repo. Contains pure-Rust dependencies which attempt to encapsulate the capability of OpenCV, OpenMVG, and vSLAM frameworks in a cohesive set of APIs.

    This is a nice guide, but ultimately openCV should be rewritten in rust. It would avoid all of these headaches. Please checkout and support
