MLabs - LambdaBuffers (was Cardano dApp schemas) code generation backends for Rust, Javascript and Aiken

Problem

Lack of a language-agnostic mechanism to specify the types used in Cardano Dapps reduces cross-language interoperability and increases the time spent on connecting on-chain, off-chain, and analytics.

Solution

Configuration-based mechanism for specifying DApp data types and associated tooling for producing type libraries with common operations for Rust, Javascript and Aiken language environments.

Team

MLabs

MLabs has quickly become one of the premier development firms in the Cardano Ecosystem. We are an IOG Plutus Partner and work regularly with IOG to develop the Cardano blockchain and ecosystem. Our team is composed of talented developers who have helped build community projects such as:

  • Liqwid
  • SundaeSwap
  • Minswap
  • Optim
  • Many others

Through our work with early-stage projects, we have one of the largest groups of Haskell/Plutus developers in the community.

Core Team

Drazen Popovic

Full-stack Cardano distributed application (dApp) developer and auditor, working on several Cardano dApps that span Haskell, Purescript, Rust and Nix language environments. Worked on decentralized protocols based on the Cardano blockchain including decentralized exchange, synthetic assets, oracle protocols and programmable money. In particular, he was the technical lead on the Cardano Open Oracle Protocol and was responsible for design and implementation.

Technical lead on the LambdaBuffers project, which is a novel toolkit for sharing types between different languages. Led the design and implementation which included common compiler topics such as type checking, type class resolution and code generation into various languages.

Less notable, but mention worthy, a maintainer of a Purescript Bridge fork (now deprecated in favor of LambdaBuffers) and a contributor to Cardano Transaction Lib Purescript library which is one of the foundational tools in the Cardano ecosystem.
