A newbie's perspective: Implementing a Virtual Dom engine in Rust

Submitted Jan 18, 2023

I will discuss my ongoing first-nontrivial-project-with-Rust, which is an implementation of my Concur UI library called “Concurse”. I knew very little Rust before embarking on the project, and the plan was to discover Rust idioms and to become comfortable with Rust along the way. Not the best way to learn Rust? Well, fighting the compiler until we reach a position of mutual respect and understanding is how I learn most programming languages!

Currently I have an implementation of a virtual dom engine. which can be found inside the Concurse Repo.

I will take people through how a vdom engine works and how that translates to the Rust code (perhaps also some rants on how Rust does things).
