This library automatically handles macros inside your code. For example, support you calls a macro that will generate a struct, then even if that struct is not in the code directly, this library can understand it.
The implementation is as follows: To produce code for types or functions that are generated through macros, it is necessary to first expand the code before it is parsed. This is done by invoking cargo-expand, a tool that expands all macros, resulting in code that can then be parsed.
Caution: This expansion process cannot be utilized when the code-generator is invoked within a
The issue here is that
cargo-expand triggers a project build, and invoking it within
build.rs would lead to a deadlock, as
cargo-expand would wait for the calling cargo build to complete.
In such cases, code is read from files without macro expansion.
If your API definition does not rely on macros for code generation, this works fine.
Otherwise, you have to call the
flutter_rust_bridge_codegen binary seperately.
