  • How to add targets to Rust for cross-compiling *offline*
    2 projects | | 12 Aug 2022
    For that I can reccommend cross. It basically uses docker containers with the toolchain of the target platform inside to compile your code. To get the relevant image on your server you can docker save the image on your machine and docker load it on your server.

    We do however have a remote feature, where the toolchain would be added to a volume to be used in the image/container later.

    ...or use cross if you've got C dependencies that also need to be musl'd.

  • Why use Rust over Python for CLI?
    4 projects | | 30 Jul 2022
    Rust things are easier to deploy: No virtualenvs vs. gambling with the system-wide packages, no "follow these steps to install". If you stick to pure Rust dependencies or dependencies which support statically linking their C components, a Rust binary is a self-contained executable and, if you specify the -C target-feature=+crt-static compiler flag when targeting Windows and use the *-musl targets when targeting Linux... via cross if necessary, then you'll get a Go-like self-contained binary that can be copied onto any system capable of running binaries with that platform triple with no worries about external dependencies.

  • Moving from Mobile dev exp to Rust world
    1 project | | 18 Jul 2022
    Rust is good for both servers and tools because its static linking and the availability of cross for more complex situations make it easy to deploy. (A little more involved to cross-build than Go, but with much more support for enforcing invariants using the type system at compile time.)
  • Has anyone programmed a Raspberry Pi with Rust?
    3 projects | | 1 Jul 2022
    A (long) while ago I setup a rocket http server for a very specific home automation problem. Long compile times were kind of a pain in the butt. If I had to do it again, I'd probably use cross.
  • Do Rust dependencies get nasty like JS or Python?
    2 projects | | 28 Jun 2022
    Static linking of Rust binaries means that your C dependencies are the only things outside the binary that can become mismatched when you're copying the binary to another system. (Though libc is a C dependency, so you may need to either use cross or rustup target add x86_64-unknown-linux-musl and build against that instead if you need to support Linux distro versions earlier than whatever you're running.)

    How does this differ to cross?
    4 projects | | 28 Jun 2022
    I remember [cross]( does not support `x86_64-apple-darwin` and `x86_64-pc-windows-msvc` targets.

    Nice! cross is definitely a very powerful framework. My idea was to create a unique and easy-to-use docker image to fastly compile for Linux, Windows and MacOS. You can pull it from DockerHub and easily compile your project. I hope my work can help several Rustaceans! Of course, I am open for contributions and improvements.
  • I just compiled my library to RISC-V, which (the library) was developed on an arm64 computer and depended on libraries built for X86. With ZERO setup! Cargo is cool!

  • Cross v0.2.2 Released
    6 projects | | 24 Jun 2022
    A lot of work has been spent making the process as painless as possible. A crosstool-ng image is slightly more complex, but still quite easy: you just need a valid config file. The basic logic can be found here, and cross-toolchains has a few more examples.

    We've just released cross v0.2.2, a tool for cross-compiling and testing of cross-compiled crates. Our last release was 2 years ago, and since then we've patched numerous bugs, added numerous features, and added new targets.
