GSoC 2021- Explore building binary addons in rust - mihir_luthra - 2021-04-03

Hello everyone,

I am Mihir, a final year engineering student.
I have been using Kodi since quite some time and really like it.
I just noticed that it has been selected as a GSoC org and has a Rust project.
Being a fan of both these things, I was really interested in doing this project.
Could I get some help on where to start?

Thanks!

I am also interested in "Implementing a performance critical element of kodi in rust".

I'm actually not sure, if this can happen, as the team members that are curious about rust don't really work on binary addons, as far as I know. Maybe porting one of the binary addons we have would be an option or just taking a package from crates and implementing the needed api.

I am interested in this. Where should I connect with the mentors for rust kodi projects?
Is #kodi-gsoc the right place?

Yes, that would be the best place.
