Who’s using bors?
This month’s featured user is gfx-rs, a low-level graphics abstraction library in Rust.
- It aims to be the choice of cross-platform graphics development, serve as a basis for GPUWeb implementation, and provide the external C API for Vulkan portability initiative. See “We need to go lower” for more info.
- The project has seen intensive development last month with over 50 merged pull requests having 130+ commits touching several thousand lines of code.
- Main forces are concentrated around shaping up the low-level core API. The library structure has been shaken up, and a new vision is slowly materializing.
Got any suggestions for next month? Post a comment on the October pull request.
