  • Rust in FTC

    I'm very new to Rust, so please let me know if any of the info is incorrect.
    I've looked at it and it looks like a very new compiled language with no garbage collector similar in performance to C yet with type safety and easier concurrency. I've seen examples of it used through the JNI and it looks very similar in usage as C. I am wondering if it is legal to code our own or use existing libraries written in Rust for competition Android studio code, and if anyone has written Android code with it and knows resources for learning.

    As long as you're only making additions to the standard RC app, I think it's perfectly legal. Keep in mind however that if you run into any issues, we won't really be able to help you. Same goes for trying to get help from an FTA at competition.
