In this talk, Daniel delved into Tauri, a framework for creating GUI Hybrid apps for desktop and mobile devices. Tauri offers a range of benefits, including being an excellent platform for learning Rust, its secure design, and a hardened JS API for interacting with its Rust core. The framework allows for feature opt-in, tiny binaries, and promotes a fearless, blazing, safe, and fun development experience.

What is Tauri made of?

It comprises a Rust core, along with components like Winit, Tao, egui, wgpu, menubar, and System Webview. Its plugin architecture provides a full JS and Rust API, allowing for extensive customization and functionality.

During the presentation, Daniel explored Tauri’s control flow, plugins, language bindings for mobile development (such as Java or Swift), and additional ecosystem tools. He also addressed security measures, including continuous verification, internal and external security audits, IPC exposure configuration, and asset signing for updates.
