Getting started with Rust FFI

Rust is a fantastic systems level programming language known for it’s memory safety and painless concurrency. But as a relatively new language it can sometimes lack mature libraries for various tasks.

Knowhere Cafe Forums

For a long time now I have had this idea bouncing around for a website that I wanted to make from scratch. It had all these certain features, but not these other features and I had it all planned out. I had even made a version of it years ago that I called Faker. Some […]
