Leveraging Rust to build cross-platform mobile libraries

Jan-Erik Rediger

Lightning talk - in English

At Mozilla, Rust is used more and more to build and modernize Firefox, a browser that's more than 15 years old.
But we also have other products, some of which are smartphone applications, and it's not just web browsers!
These applications are build on top of a multitude of libraries, which are reused across platforms if possible.

In the past year I worked on one of these libraries, which is now shipping across Android and iOS and will soon be back on Desktop platforms as well.
This talk will showcase how we manage to build cross-platform libraries with small teams and ship them to a bunch of platforms all at once.
