I’m an experienced Python programmer but I was interested in trying Rust, was wondering if anyone has experience getting it running and building apps with it?
Yes! It is actually fairly straight forward.
rustup works without any serious hitches and when I have created a simple demo, SDL2 was completely fine (in both canvas and gl).
You will need to create a menu script to point to your project so you can run it from the launcher.
Thanks, that is great to hear. Would you happen to have a GitHub to the demo you used?
I’ll upload a simple sprite based one with canvas on SDL in a few hours but you can download the rust-sdl2 crate and try one of the examples that are listed in the repo.
