Rust bindings for the Paddle Inference, the core inference engine for PaddlePaddle.
Based on PaddlePaddle 2.0.0-rc1.
This library is intended to provide a low-level wrapper for functions, datatypes, and others in the Paddle Inference C language API. You may use it in applications that need to interact with Paddle Inference directly in Rust.
We use the bindgen tool to generate wrappers over the Paddle Inference C language header file and the libloading tool to load the pre-compiled library. So before you run your application, please ensure you have a pre-compiled library with the correct version and set the environment variables to let the linker could find it. An example of Linux is shown below.
The usage for this library is mostly like the stuff you do with Paddle Inference in C language. But it’s in Rust, meaning that you would use some unsafe features and manage pointers and malloced memories. I sincerely hope that if there are developers who stand out to develop a safe wrapper based on this library. Let’s make PaddlePaddle more prosperous!
Demos are available on paddle-sys-demo. Any advice is welcomed.
