You need the following set up:
- a Rust development environment (cargo)
- a C++ development environment (cmake)
- an up to date version of Qt 5
- extra-cmake-modules from your distro's repositories
- corrosion (for Gentoo: dev-util/corrosion::2xsaiko)
- the cxxbridge command from my cxx fork
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make -j5
That's it! The binary should be output at build/mcrestool.
