A smithy for rusty wayland compositors

Goals

Also:

  • Documented: Smithay strives to maintain a clear and detailed documentation of its API and its functionnalities. Compiled documentations are available on docs.rs for released versions, and here for the master branch.
  • Safety: Smithay will target to be safe to use, because Rust.
