Vulkano: Pairing Rust With Vulkan
Written by Michael Larabel in Vulkan on 28 March 2016 at 08:19 AM EDT. 18 Comments
While exploring the community game engines/projects making use of Vulkan over Easter, I also encountered another fun project: Vulkano.

Vulkano makes use of two of the most exciting pieces of tech this year: Rust and Vulkan. Vulkano is a Rust wrapper around the Vulkan API. Vulkano is licensed under the Apache 2.0 or optionally the MIT license. Vulkano provides the Rust wrapper library around Vulkan along with a vulkano-shaders library for analyzing SPIR-V shaders at compile-time and then a GLSLR-to-SPIR-V library for compiling OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) to SPIR-V IR with Rust.

If you are a fan of Rust and Vulkan and wish to make use of them together in one of your projects, visit Vulkano on GitHub to learn more about the work.
