  • bevy

    A refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust

    The second is bevy, an open source game engine that uses ECS and a modular architecture to make game creation better. Bevy is massive and thriving, but there's always more work to be done, ranging from cleanup to tackling and owning whole product sections (like audio, animation or assets).

  • Cargo

    The Rust package manager

    Has anyone provided feedback on workspace inheritance yet?

  • clap-rs

    A full featured, fast Command Line Argument Parser for Rust

    One in particular that I would love to get additional help on is a clap-native complete. This will reduce the shell-specific bugs we have to deal with, make it easier to add and test features without knowledge and access to all of the shells, and open the way for clap users to provide rust code to generate their own completions.

  • lapce

    Lightning-fast and Powerful Code Editor written in Rust lot of small issues you can work on.

  • taffy

    A high performance rust-powered UI layout library

    The first is taffy, a moderately-sized team working to make UI layout in Rust fast, safe and easy to use. This is a fun, small team; right now we're working together to test and clean up an inherited code base before adding support for more layout paradigms.

  • diesel_async

    Diesel async connection implementation

    So, diesel is an ORM that tries to take full advantage of rust's typing expressivity to allow for statically checked, and fast, queries. I absolutely loved it when trying it out the first time.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • validator

    Simple validation for Rust structs (by Keats) needs some help, it's a validation library that easily plugs into Web Development.

  • veracruz

    Main repository for the Veracruz privacy-preserving compute project, an adopted project of the Confidential Compute Consortium (CCC).

    Veracruz ( always welcomes new contributors. It uses trusted hardware, remote attestation, and Wasm as a way of performing privacy-preserving collaborative computations, like privacy-preserving ML, or secret surveys, elections, and auctions.

  • pomsky

    A new, portable, regular expression language

    I welcome contributions for rulex. It's a medium-sized project that should be fairly easy to understand, and has some "good first issues" :)
