and other cruft starts to accumulate if you’re not careful. But thats not what this post is about.
Its literally about the programming language Rust.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to do a lot in C which is what Rust feels like. Full of curly braces and semicolons its VERY C like – and I’ll post about my adventures getting familiar with it and how I think it can be leveraged in a cross platform world.
It has some nice characteristics. It can compile for a wide range of targets from the get go. So far it looks like you can cross compile from macOS to Windows and vice versa (as well as many other targets) which is handy. And you can have Rustc compile exe’s, dylibs and several other types as well as its own custom types.
Looks darned fun.
