Will there ever be processing library in Rust?

#1

Among all others processing most intuitive and easy to learn lib for creative programming. Are there any plans to rewrite it in Rust for better speed and Wasm compatibility in the future?

No idea, but I’d doubt there’ll be a rewrite. The speed argument is seriously questionable - depends where the bottlenecks are. But Graal coming to the JVM brings up at least the possibility of writing a Rust mode for Java Processing that runs on the JVM, and compiling directly to native code, and targetting Wasm.
