  • naga

    Universal shader translation in Rust

    Not sure about on the CPU, but naga is a shading language transpiler you can write custom front/backends for.

  • rust-gpu

    🐉 Making Rust a first-class language and ecosystem for GPU shaders 🚧

    rust-gpu is a project to give the Rust compiler a SPIR-V backend. naga could then convert that output to GLSL.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • wgpu

    Safe and portable GPU abstraction in Rust, implementing WebGPU API.

    Myself, I've been thinking about going a different direction: writing the code twice but also writing unit tests that test the GPU implementation. In wgpu it is easy to access the GPU without also creating a window, so at some point I'm going to try writing hybrid unit tests.
