I am searching for Rust <-> Python interop crates on crates.io

The top result is:
https://crates.io/crates/python

Can someone please explain how this crate works?

https://docs.rs/pyo3/ is probably the best bet.

crates.io will show the exact name first. in this case a placeholder crate.

Then you have to check them yourself.

Thanks, is there anyway to do something about the python crate? It seems to just be parking / wasting a useful name.

That would be the name-squatting discussion all over again. Probably not unless the owner gives it up.

I can second that. It requires nightly, which can be a blocker for some, but it's a very nice to use and well developed library that worked great for me while I was writing a Blender plugin in Rust, which required me to both call Rust from Python and call Python from Rust.

I believe pyo3 doesn't require nightly anymore :slight_smile:
