When I learned Rust, I really wanted to use it in FRC, and I soon found out that others did too.
Since my team is at Houston basically right now, I figured this would be a good time to announce that I consider my passion project, First Rust Competition (FRC) ready for real use. 114’s RIO has only run Rust in 2019.
Rust doesn’t magically write 971’s IPC and State Space Controllers for you. But, I can say that the hardware libraries work and Rust as easy and fun to use on embedded as it is on desktop.
Please let me know if you check the project out or decide to use it! PRs welcome. If you’re at Houston and want to look at some of our Rust code, find the 114 pit and ask for Josh. We also have Rust-related stickers courtesy of Ferrous Systems. Our code will be released after we clean a few things up.
