Unstable Rust module
(new in 0.57.0)
Note Unstable modules make no backwards compatible API guarantees.
The rust module provides helper to integrate rust code into Meson. The goal is to make using rust in Meson more pleasant, while still remaining mesonic, this means that it attempts to make Rust work more like Meson, rather than Meson work more like rust.
test(name: string, target: library | executable, dependencies: Dependency)
This function creates a new rust unittest target from an existing rust
based target, which may be a library or executable. It does this by
copying the sources and arguments passed to the original target and
--test argument to the compilation, then creates a new
test target which calls that executable, using the rust test protocol.
This accepts all of the keyword arguments as the
test function except
protocol, it will set
Additional, test only dependencies may be passed via the dependencies argument.
bindgen(*, input: string | BuildTarget | string | BuildTarget, output: strng, include_directories: include_directories, c_args: string, args: string)
This function wraps bindgen to simplify creating rust bindings around C
libraries. This has two advantages over hand-rolling ones own with a
- It handles
include_directories, so one doesn't have to manually convert them to
- It automatically sets up a depfile, making the results more reliable
It takes the following keyword arguments
- input — A list of Files, Strings, or CustomTargets. The first element is the header bindgen will parse, additional elements are dependencies.
- output — the name of the output rust file
- include_directories — A list of
include_directoriesobjects, these are passed to clang as
- c_args — A list of string arguments to pass to clang untouched
- args — A list of string arguments to pass to
rust = import('unstable-rust') inc = include_directories('..'¸ '../../foo') generated = rust.bindgen( 'myheader.h', 'generated.rs', include_directories : [inc, include_directories('foo'), args : ['--no-rustfmt-bindings'], c_args : ['-DFOO=1'], )
If the header depeneds on generated headers, those headers must be passed to
bindgen as well to ensure proper dependency ordering, static headers do not
need to be passed, as a proper depfile is generated:
h1 = custom_target(...) h2 = custom_target(...) r1 = rust.bindgen( [h1, h2], # h1 includes h2, 'out.rs', )
