Technical Resources and a Few Important Concepts
Make yourself familiar with some Rust knowledge and a few basic underlying concepts what we are using to build Pyrsia. To know more about project's architecture and use cases follow the link to Pyrsia architecture and use cases.
Here a few Rust resources to start with
- Getting Started Rust Programming Language
- rustlings 🦀❤️ small exercises to get you used to Rust coding.
- The Rust Programming Language book
- Chapter by Chapter The Rust Lang Book Video Playlist
- The Cargo Book - Rust Package Manager
- A collection of runnable example at Rust By Example
- In Pyrsia we use Asynchronous Programing in quite a few places. You would find important concepts at Asynchronous Programming in Rust
Third Party Frameworks & Libraries
To build Pyrsia's decentralized network we made some architectural design decisions for peer to peer communications. This requires us to use a few protocols and their third party implementations. Here is a list of few of them along with useful links to relevant documents.
- Pyrsia uses libp2p library for building the decentralized network. libp2p concepts link to have better understanding on Pyrsia.
- Using Tokio's asynchronous runtime for the Rust programming language.
- Ed25519 high-speed high-security public-key signature system
- Aleph Consensus Protocol
- Aleph BFT concepts.
- AlephBFT Consensus
- Rust implementation at Cardinal-Cryptography/AlephBFT
- Distributed Hash Table (DHT) and P2P technologies
