Rust BoF

See the main Hacking Days page for time and location information.


Let's get together and discuss and hack on all things Rust (especially ones relevant to GNOME).


  • State of the various crates: gtk-rs, gstreamer-rs etc.
  • How to move forward with subclassing support in the bindings?
    • Most requested feature but no focussed action on adding support for more types
    • Make some more types subclassable during the BoF
  • How would one add Rust to GTK itself? E.g. port the file chooser to Rust; for maximum convenience this would need bindings for the child widgets.
  • Variant API.
  • Please add more here.


Anyone interested in Rust.
