Creative Projects for Rust Programmers
Build exciting projects on domains such as web apps, WebAssembly, games, and parsing
About the Book
A practical guide to understanding the latest features of the Rust programming language, useful libraries, and frameworks that will help you design and develop interesting projects
- Work through projects that will help you build high-performance applications with Rust
- Delve into concepts such as error handling, memory management, concurrency, generics, and macros with Rust
- Improve business productivity by choosing the right libraries and frameworks for your applications
Rust is a community-built language that solves pain points present in many other languages, thus improving performance and safety. In this book, you will explore the latest features of Rust by building robust applications across different domains and platforms.
The book gets you up and running with high-quality open source libraries and frameworks available in the Rust ecosystem that can help you to develop efficient applications with Rust. You'll learn how to build projects in domains such as data access, RESTful web services, web applications, 2D games for web and desktop, interpreters and compilers, emulators, and Linux Kernel modules. For each of these application types, you'll use frameworks such as Actix, Tera, Yew, Quicksilver, ggez, and nom. This book will not only help you to build on your knowledge of Rust but also help you to choose an appropriate framework for building your project.
By the end of this Rust book, you will have learned how to build fast and safe applications with Rust and have the real-world experience you need to advance in your career.
What you will learn
- Access TOML, JSON, and XML files and SQLite, PostgreSQL, and Redis databases
- Develop a RESTful web service using JSON payloads
- Build desktop 2D games
- Develop an interpreter and a compiler for a programming language
- Create a machine language emulator
- Extend the Linux Kernel with loadable modules
Who this book is for
This Rust programming book is for developers who want to get hands-on experience with implementing their knowledge of Rust programming, and are looking for expert advice on which libraries and frameworks they can adopt to develop software that typically uses the Rust language.
Founded in 2004 in Birmingham, UK, Packt's mission is to help the world put software to work in new ways, through the delivery of effective learning and information services to IT professionals.
Working towards that vision, we have published over 6,500 books and videos so far, providing IT professionals with the actionable knowledge they need to get the job done - whether that's specific learning on an emerging technology or optimizing key skills in more established tools.
As part of our mission, we have also awarded over $1,000,000 through our Open Source Project Royalty scheme, helping numerous projects become household names along the way.
