The Rust Working Group at the Academy Software Foundation is looking into bringing momentum back into the working group. We previously started working on bindings for C++ libraries roughly in 2020, and spent a ton of time and resources on creating C and Rust binding generators, which unfortunately slowed us down immensely. We decided to switch gears and use binding generators that already exist (such as
cxx). Also, we've created as survey to get an understanding of where we should be focusing our resources (https://forms.gle/zZRsnvSX1WgmdNd5A).
If you're interested in creating Rust bindings for VFX libraries, or interested in following the progress, please check out the #rust channel in the ASWF Slack channel (https://slack.aswf.io/). We also have a bi-weekly meeting happening on March 9th at 1 pm, Pacific Time. More information can be found on the ASWF meetings calendar: https://www.aswf.io/meeting-calendar/
