Re: Consider using Rust-based Tauri instead of Electron for SAFE Browser I’m pleased that directly utilizing a rendering engine and eliminating the overhead of any Electron-type hosting infrastructure is considered.
Reimplementing SAFE Browser [more] natively with Rust is something I’ve thought about, and naturally with Servo as @joshuef mentioned primarily in mind. It’s a project I may be interested in undertaking.
Irrespective of who does the work, and indeed there should be multiple browsers, this topic can help facilitate it.
- SAFE GUI browser-styled application, written with Rust, implementing support for web stack tech.
- SAFE API is available for web apps to utilize in addition to web stack API.
- Implemented first as a separate project that may eventually replace the official browser, or not.
- Free & open-source licensed codebase.
I welcome and appreciate any pointers to pertinent docs, guidance, and thoughts.
