Hi all,

I'm working on creating a layer for the rust compiler (which uses
llvm) and was wondering if there were any best practices and/or
examples people could point me at.
Are you using llvm recipes from meta-oe (or at least starting from

I can't really offer much help on the LLVM side, but I can say this
will be really useful work. I'm slowly learning Rust and researching
how it can be used for embedded development and it will be excellent
to have a rust compiler working as part of OpenEmbedded/Yocto.

If you need any testing of this layer once it's created, just let me know.
I'm also interested.

I haven't tried it yet, but I've asked Servo developer, how they do
cross-builds and he said that it's really simple with Rust and Cargo,
which support cross-compilation by design.

Now reading:
it doesn't looks so convincing, but I would be happy to test.
