Documentation on the Rust client is fairly minimal as the architecture is still under active change and development. Our main Rust repository contains three major components:
Saito-Core contains the majority of the code that runs the blockchain. This code is intended to be compiled into a binary package that can also be deployed to browsers (and integrated with other programming languages). Clients that use this optimized bundle will simply need to pass a series of handlers into the code on initialization that will receive outbound messages and handle language-specific tasks like networking and data storage.
Saito-Rust contains the Rust-specific code that makes Saito-Core fully functional. It initializes the components contained in Saito-Core, and passes them the Network and Storage handlers needed for the core components to save the blockchain and interact with the network.
The Rust software is under heavy development. It is not intended to be a useable network client for third-party developers. You are welcome to download the software, and participate in development. Or just explore the repository and see how we are doing.
Developers should note that the Rust client does not currently support anything other than transaction processing. There is no built-in server on which applications can be deployed or installed.
