Howdy y’all. A few of us have voiced interest in developing a rust-based wrapper that can target any plugin type as a back-end. I’m here to get the ball rolling on the discussion in the forum so that others can give their input.
Things to consider:
- Thread safety
- Avoiding the ‘lowest-common-denominator’ while trying to satisfy all capabilities across the different plugin types.
- Modeling off of previous attempts at open standards
- Setting up a bibliography of resources and learning materials
- Avoiding the pitfalls of a ‘design-by-committee’ hodgepodge (I’m looking at you, C++)
I’m looking forward to contributing a lot to this effort, but like most of us, I’m busy with work/school/life. If we can pace ourselves and make sure not to get burnt out I think we could come up with something nice!
