GNOME+Rust Hackfest 2017

Mexico City, Red Hat Office, 29th-31st of March 2017

Primary contact: FedericoMenaQuintero
Secondary contact: AlbertoRuiz

Relevant GNOME team

GLib, Gtk+, GObject Introspection, Release Team... and anyone interested in bindings and Rust

Description

In this hackfest we want to improve the interoperability between Rust and GNOME, improve support of GNOME libraries in Rust and explore solutions to create GObject APIs from Rust

Agenda, goals

  • Review state of current GLib/Gtk+ bindings (automatic vs. manual)
  • Discuss current challenges of using Rust in GNOME projects (GStreamer
  • Discuss mapping between the GObject type system and Rust's
  • Develop an initial macro to generate GObjects from Rust
  • Improve GNOME Builder's support for Rust and its GObject integration facilities

Measuring your success

The main goal is to come up with a feasible roadmap in which Rust becomes a more convenient choice for GNOME than it currently is

Costs

We are getting the venue for free, and most Mozillians are paying for their own flights. So the only need for sponsorship would fall on the people on the GNOME side.

Current sponsors

Mozilla (sponsoring Rust developers), Red Hat (sponsoring Alberto and providing a venue)

How to get there

Calle Río Lerma 232, Cuauhtémoc, 06500 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
