Title

Rust API bindings for fd.io VPP

Status

APPROVED BY TSC

Difficulty

MEDIUM


Description 

Rust is a modern high performance systems language.
VPP is a high performance data plane. To date there is no Rust API bindings for VPP yet.

This internship would change that situation and provide the community with a way to very effectively use VPP from a modern ans safe language.

Having a high performance VPP API bindings library would be extremely helpful for more thorough and effective testing and better integration ppportunities.
