#RuNo bridge usage example
Generating boilerplate C++ code to call Rust from NodeJS.
RuNo Rust to NodeJS bridge: https://github.com/andruhon/runo-bridge
##non NPM dependencies
You should install following dependencies by yourself:
- Rust and Cargo (compatible with your NodeJS)
- C++ compiler (see node-gyp installation instructions)
##important The runo-bridge itself does not need Rust or C++ with node-gyp, it just emits a C++ source file.
However in order to build this source code, your rust and C++ compiler should be compatible with your NodeJS. It is particularly important on Windows, where Rust target should be MSVC not GNU, unless you building your NodeJS for Windows from source with GCC. For example, if one using 32 bit NodeJS on Windows this one should use target
i686-pc-windows-msvc, if 64 bit Node then Rust should be configured with
x86_64-pc-windows-msvc compile target. The same about C++: Everything is mostrly smooth on platforms with GCC, and a bit painful with MS Visual C++, please refer to node-gyp installation instructions for details.
npm run generate-addon
npm run build
Inspect that works:
