    Phoronix: More Details About The Vulkano Library, Rust + Vulkan

    As covered back in March, Vulkano is a library pairing Rust with the Vulkan API for taking advantage of the Rust programming language's feature set while utilizing this new high-performance graphics API from the Khronos Group...

    Great, when can we have Pylkan?

      I think using Vulkan from Python wouldn't make sense, for Python (or typical Python implementations, at least) would likely trash the benefits Vulkan would bring (specially if the implementation is single-threaded). My impression is that the speedups for which one would consider switching from OpenGL to Vulkan are similar to the ones one could expect to get from switching from Python to C, and, thus, if one were so concerned with performance so as to invest the effort required to use Vulkan, one would likely go all the way and use C or C++.

      … or was that irony?

        Or Rust!

          Any implementation for Python would likely just using Rust's Vulkano implementation. In fact, there's little reason to have libraries written in any language other than Rust.

            Funny! Vulkano should only be used via a safe C wrapper!

              Rust was designed because of "safe C wrappers"

                  For Python, there is vkstruct: https://github.com/cheery/vkstruct/
                  This is by the same person who made Spirthon last year (a Python to Spir-v compiler mockup). I haven't tried it myself since no Vulkan drivers for AMD are working on Arch the last time I checked.

                    It's good that we spent all this effort creating a lower level API so people can use it for higher level languages...
