Rhai is an embedded scripting language and evaluation engine for Rust that gives a safe and easy way to add scripting to any application.
This Book is for version 1.5.0 of Rhai.
With java being a kind of hot beverage, the new language was named after another hot beverage – Chai, which is the word for “tea” in many world languages and, in particular, a popular kind of spicy milk tea consumed in India.
Later, when the novel implementation technique behind ChaiScript was ported from C++ to Rust,
C was changed to an
R to make it “RhaiScript”, or just “Rhai”.
One of Rhai’s maintainers,
@schungx, was thinking about a logo
when he accidentally came across a copy of Catcher in the Rye in a restaurant, and drew the first
version of the logo.
@semirix refined it to the current version.
