@ GiGa infosystems

After getting his master's degree in Geoinformationscience, Björn joined GiGa infosystems in 2017. Ever since he has been working on software to store, manage and distribute 3D geological data, and almost all of this day to day work involves Rust. When there is time he tries to work on and improve an iOS app that visualizes this 3D data in Augmented Reality. Maybe there will be an opportunity to integrate Rust with the Swift code base as well.

Generating ergonomic C++ APIs using Rustdoc, procedural macros, and Serde
November 10 2024 - 13:00 (25 min )

How to integrate your new shiny Rust code into an existing codebase is a common problem. For this you might need to provide an API so that your Rust code can be accessed from the non-Rust side, for example from a C++ codebase. Rust only provides tools out of the box to define a low level C API, and even that can be troublesome. In this talk we want to demonstrate how you can use procedural macros, Rustdoc's unstable JSON format, and Serde to generate an idiomatic and ergonomic C++ API based on your existing Rust API.
