Rust Language in GJS to Improve Memory Safety and Use

Short Description

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
