  • How does Rust Python ffi work?
    3 projects | /r/rust | 10 May 2022
    I've never used pyo3, just cpython, but the latter at least let me do things like:
  • Hey, i begin my journey into Rust !
    7 projects | /r/rust | 16 Feb 2022
    For interoperating with Python, check out PyO3 or rust-cpython. (More generally, see Rust Interop and Are We Extending Yet?)
  • Should I learn Rust coming from Python?
    2 projects | /r/rust | 27 Nov 2021
    You probably should learn Rust. Aside from the process of learning new and different languages making you a better programmer, rust-cpython, PyO3, or Interoptopus make it easy to expose Python APIs from your Rust code. (eg. So it's easy to compile the same codebase as both a Python module and a WebAssembly module.)
  • What do you NOT like about Rust?
    18 projects | /r/rust | 21 Nov 2021
    Have you looked into abi_stable, flapigen, interoptopus, cbindgen, PyO3, or rust-cpython?
  • Strengths and applications of Rust
    5 projects | /r/rust | 6 Nov 2021
    Personally, I'm not willing to compromise on my GUI look and feel, so I use PyQt or PySide to write my GUIs against the QWidget API (I'm a KDE user and Python is the only language with mature memory-safe bindings to Qt) and, if the project can be structured with a frontend-backend separation, I use rust-cpython or PyO3 to write a backend in Rust that the Python frontend can import. Sort of using Python/Rust as a QWidget analogue to the QML/C++ architecture promoted for Qt Quick. (Which I don't use because it's still too incomplete on Kubuntu 20.04 LTS.)
  • From Python to Rust, should I?
    3 projects | /r/rust | 2 Nov 2021
    also, check out rust-cpython, PyO3, and maturin, among other things. They're really nice options for using Rust for its strengths and Python for its strengths within the same project.
  • How we built our Python Client that's mostly Rust
    4 projects | | 27 Aug 2021
    This section uses flapigen to expand the foreign_class macro into many cpython functions as an extension module, and cargo compiles it as a cdylib. If you want to see what that looks like, install cargo-expand and run cargo expand. You'll get a lot of generated rust code.
  • How do i go about building a vidoe conferencing app?
    10 projects | /r/rust | 20 Aug 2021
    For Python specifically, In addition to using rust-cpython or PyO3, maturin makes it really comfortable to build, package, and publish Rust code into Python packages and, if your niche doesn't quite fit, there's setuptools-python which might do it.
  • Does rust have function works like eval?
    9 projects | /r/rust | 19 Aug 2021
    hlua or rlua are what you want for Lua, rust-cpython or PyO3 for Python, rutie for Ruby, and possibly deno_core for JavaScript.
  • Python extensions in Rust
    4 projects | /r/rust | 13 Aug 2021
    I've done it using cpython and pyo3 for performance in scientific computing. Compared to C++ I found using Rust got rid of most debugging across the FFI boundary. Eliminating memory errors and providing clear compilation errors when multithreading made more a difference for me than type safety, though it's not unrelated.
