Rust Language in GJS to Improve Memory Safety and Use
This project is somewhat multilayered, the aim is to;
- gather some metrics from GJS such as memory use, leakage, performance (stability will be hard to measure).
- the replacement of small sections of GJS with Rust - these sections would be detirmined by the above
- the impact this has on such things as performance, memory safety, memory use
This project will also have a few benefits such as;
- increasing the knowledge base of using Rust within an established C/C++ project
- an increase in stability and decrease in memory leakage within GJS
