Hybrid WebGL Applications: how React & TypeScript meet Rust in the Game of Life

Edition: 19th SFI Academic Festiwal

Date: April 6, 2024, 12:20 p.m.

Type: Lectures

Category: Web dev


JavaScript as primary language comes as no surprise in web application development. However, when facing high-performance tasks like web games or when native languages & libraries could prove beneficial, developers may seek a hybrid tech stack. Code optimization or ready implementations of various algorithms can enhance both runtime and development speed.

This lecture demonstrates an example of WebGL Conway's Game of Life in React employing THREE.js for rendering the scene and integrating Rust game logic compiled to WebAssembly. The lecture shall appeal to web developers, React enthusiasts, and aficionados of low-level programming languages, thanks to Rust and Wasm.
