Rust in the Enterprise

In our work building digital products for blue chips we adopt modern technologies and patterns to solve enterprise requirements. There’s a shift we see with a greater potential to radically benefit enterprises than any other. The Rust programming language is set to go viral inside enterprises in 2023 as it is a key tool (of many) to a safer, more scalable, more testable and cheaper way to build and run complex, cross-platform applications.

Although originally adopted as a systems programming language, we think it’s inevitable that enterprises will adopt Rust for their complex application landscape. We are seeding the community of thinkers, builders and adopters to advocate and support this journey. We have started by pioneering CRUX, a new approach to multi-platform digital products serving iOS, Android, and (crucially) Web, based on a central Rust business logic core.

Why Rust?

Red Badger leads digital transformation in blue chip enterprises and we experience many different approaches.

We believe the Rust programming language, coupled with WebAssembly, and new scale-to-zero architectures, will revolutionise the way enterprises approach digital transformation. It enables delightful digital products on multiple platforms, secure apps at scale, reduces build and run costs, and makes continuous innovation easy.

The transition to a better, more sustainable future state can be incremental. We advocate adopting Rust were appropriate and have been proactive with our pioneering experiment: CRUX, a multi-platform approach to building digital products based on a central Rust business logic core.

The Case for Rust in the Enterprise

Originally adopted as a system programming language, we believe that Rust's potential for complex application development is inevitable for enterprises. And, as a pioneer in Rust-based development, we have taken the lead by developing CRUX, a new approach to multi-platform digital products serving iOS, Android, and Web, based on a central Rust business logic core.

Why Rust in Production?

Interest in Rust has surged in recent years, with tech leaders such as Microsoft, Google, and Amazon coming forward to share their experiences of leveraging Rust for critical systems.



Headless app
development in RUST

John-Godfrey 11"At Red Badger, we are steadfast in our belief in the potential of Rust in the Enterprise," said John Godfrey, Commercial Director at Red Badger. "Rust is a powerful language that delivers exceptional performance, reliability, and security. Our team is eager to help shape its future and drive its adoption in the Enterprise as a proud member of the Rust Foundation.
The recent launch of CRUX, our open-source headless app framework built in Rust, showcases our expertise and commitment to the language. We are thrilled to bring our experience and dedication to the Rust community and work together to advance the use of Rust in the Enterprise."

Introducing CRUX

An open-source framework to help you write native User Interface applications for Mobile, Web, Desktop and beyond, faster and with fewer bugs — by sharing your application’s behaviour as a single and easy-to-test Rust core that you can reuse with confidence on every platform.

Most apps need to be built three times – once for iOS (hopefully in Swift), once for Android (hopefully in Kotlin), once for web (hopefully in TypeScript) – with no code reuse, no saving of effort, and no learning from issues. Clearly, there’s no economy in doing the same thing three or more times, and so the industry has been on a years-long hunt for a way of sharing effort and reusing code — a way of building apps just once.

But a good solution to this problem seems to forever elude us. Maybe we’re trying to answer the wrong question...?

We have a number of options that we can use today; React Native (but probably have to think about the Web separately); Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile (KMM), or Flutter (with Dart); Or we can go hybrid and use something like Capacitor with Ionic.

None of these are bad choices, but they all have significant downsides. We think we can do better than that — mostly by deciding which bits are worth sharing and which bits are not.
