    Project mention: HTTP/2 client | /r/Deno | 2023-06-07

  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

    Project mention: Are there things OOP Languages can do bust Rust can't do when it comes to GameDev | /r/rust | 2023-06-06

    IMO the biggest problem is that Rust is pretty lacking in the ability to dynamic link to code (which isn't a feature of OOP in general! It just so happen that many OOP languages also have this feature), which translates in a poor ability to write plugin systems and hot-reload code. This is not an intrinsic limitation of Rust the language though, just the tooling around it, and there is work in progress to mitigate the issue.

    Project mention: What language should I learn, Python or Rust? | /r/AskProgramming | 2023-06-05

    Neither Python nor Rust are big for use for cross-platform Desktop apps. If you really want some Rust code in your Desktop application I think you can use this:

  • alacritty

    A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.

    Project mention: Warp? A terminal behind login popup | | 2023-06-01

    My journey of using terminal emulators began together with my introduction to Linux about 7 years ago. GNOME terminal was my first as it came pre-installed on Ubuntu, my first Linux distribution. Since then, I've had the opportunity to explore and utilize a range of terminal emulators, including Alacritty, Kitty, st, Konsole, xterm, and most recently iTerm2. It's been interesting to experiment with these different emulators, each offering its unique features (or similar however with each with personal touch), user interfaces, and performance benchmarks. Just the other day, a new terminal emulator caught my attention: Warp Terminal. My curiosity won, and Warp was downloaded, this short blog are my thoughts about Warp terminal. At the moment there is only support for macOS, however linux and windows builds are on the way.

  • rustdesk

    Project mention: Mac Audio Mirroring | /r/rustdesk | 2023-06-07
  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

    Project mention: R user, trying to learn Python... what´s the Rstudio equivalent? | /r/learnpython | 2023-06-07

    But you can paste from external sources into Vim. For copying from Vim into an external source, yeah that’s trickier. Personally, I usually just have two terminals open side by side, one with Vim and one with less (actually, bat with less as the pager, so it’s like less + syntax highlighting) for copying. Somewhat ghetto, but it’s a feature-packed yet lightweight setup which works for me.

  • Rustlings

    Project mention: Website to practice C++ with other than just algorithms | /r/embedded | 2023-06-06

    Do any of you know of any resources that would allow me to practice some specific C++ notions like templates, constexpr, RAII, etc ? Something like but for C++ ?

  • starship

    ☄🌌️ The minimal, blazing-fast, and infinitely customizable prompt for any shell!

    Project mention: Everything I Installed on My New Mac | | 2023-06-03

    For my prompt, I still use Starship although my configuration has changed a bit. I've switched the pure preset which is a lot more minimal and less distracting.

  • yew

    Project mention: It's React, but in Python | | 2023-06-05

  • swc

    Rust-based platform for the Web

    Project mention: Show HN: Ezno, a TypeScript checker written in Rust, is now open source | | 2023-06-07

    Very cool! I'm curious, is this intended for dev tooling?

    For example, I could see this (or something similar) being useful as the engine for a typescript language server that would be faster than the standard one

    But if it's not aimed at 1:1 with tsc, would it be intended more for something like swc[1]?

    Or what would you expect people to use this for, besides just being a cool project to learn from?


  • vaultwarden

    Unofficial Bitwarden compatible server written in Rust, formerly known as bitwarden_rs

  • bevy

    A refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust

    Project mention: Is bevy the best option for a Rust based game engine (long term)? | /r/rust_gamedev | 2023-05-31

    Having actually tried using bevy UI for something non-trivial I don't think ECS is possible path there, it feels like a complete anti-pattern to how UIs are done. I've seen many people argue this, but at the same time I've seen no real GUIs made with bevy UI. Their UI example is a great example of how bad the situation is. Compare it to say which is mainly developed by one person.

  • Servo

    The Servo Browser Engine

    Project mention: It probably has been done before. No shame on chrumium, it's good browser, but come one people, skins are not separate browsers | /r/linuxmasterrace | 2023-06-05

    There's also stuff like Kraken, whatever SerenityOS is doing for its web browser and what I hope takes over very soon - Servo.

    Yes, Letlang is translated to Rust and the runtime is implemented in Rust, using tokio and genawaiter. The compiler itself is also built in Rust.
