  • astro-rs

    Astronomy utils written in Rust

  • Marlu

    Convenience Rust code that handles coordinate transformations, Jones matrices, etc.

    I've made a package for work that has Rust types and conversions, but I deliberately didn't try to advertise it to the wider community because it's hard to anticipate what others want. I wonder if it helps you or it would be worth making it more general: https://github.com/MWATelescope/Marlu

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • rust-cfitsio

    FFI wrapper around cfitsio in Rust

    Yes, I should have mentioned one of the goals is pure Rust - I started in a Windows dev environment, and never could get projects like https://github.com/mindriot101/rust-fitsio to run natively; for now I’m hoping to maintain the cross-platform flexibility for this project, but I’ll definitely look into Marlu more, if it provides enough benefit, it’s easy enough to add that constraint
