This proposal seeks to create an API to interact with an Urbit ship over HTTP written in Rust.
Rust is becoming a very popular language due to it's speed, safety, and portability.
This proposal comprises of the three milestones as defined in this doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1no5oos_NE8LrUWz7iG9SKZMTIzruZVevZQ75nD5OHmI/edit
Basic HTTP Interface - Responsible for sending and receiving JSON to/from an Urbit ship
Graph Store Interface - Interface to the graph-store Urbit API on top of the HTTP Interface
Additional Agent Interfaces - Interface to the group-store and metadata-store Gall agents
While doing research/testing into the complexity of building out such a http api library, I've ended up 90% completing milestone 1. This milestone should be publicly released by the end of the week that this proposal is posted on.
From a quick look-over, milestones 2/3 do not seem too complex either, however I am also working full-time in tandem, and so my spare dev time is limited. As such the 2nd/3rd milestones are pushed out a bit further to provide some lee-way to ensure they're delivered on time.
