topic: Rust

Everything I’ve written on the subject, from the beginning of this version of the site.

I may also have written on this on earlier versions of my website:

  1. 2006 – 2011 (link coming soon!)
  2. did not have a blog!
  3. 2012 – 2013 (link coming soon!)

          Zig is the first language that I’ve seen which seems interested in seriously playing in the same space as Rust.

          And it does it in a substantially different way, which I like! It feels (reading docs) kind of like a doing the kinds of things Rust does but with C instead of C++ as its direct competitor.”

          After digging in further: Zig is not doing quite what Rust is. It is an updated C, which eliminates some of the worst foot-guns, but fundamentally does not try to eliminate memory-unsafety… which profoundly disappoints me, even if I still wish Zig success.

          Status: working on figuring out how to wire up Elm and Rust-via-WebAssembly using webpack. I’ve spent the last four years in Ember and before that I was wiring up Gulp. So this is new. 😅

          What I actually want for my website: an opinionated(-but-matches-my-opinions, of course) site generator written in Rust which acts like a static site generator but has a tiny server with a tiny CMS and uses Glimmer for its templating engine.

          How I spent a last chunk of my evening: messing around and seeing just how much faster Rust is than Node, by implementing an identical (dumb) algorithm” in each — and then mucking with it to see where the optimizer can cheat. (About 10× faster for this particularly dumb loop.)

          Or: (part of) what reasoning about your code” really means; being my EmberConf 2021 talk.

          The clippy lint tool for Rust is just so good. I learn so many things from it, and my code gets so much better by way of using it.
