This crate links against rustc‘s own LLVM and thus there may be dragons laying in unsuspected places. Please do not use it, and if you must then do so only from build scripts, as arbitrary programs are not guaranteed to run next to the rustc that compiled them.

No higher-level bindings are provided by this crate, I'll probably do coopted_llvm on top of it at a later date. Note too that even this sys crate only provides the bare minimum to compile LLVM IR modules to native code.

Don't ask me why I did this, I just felt like it.


This crate is licensed under both the Apache 2.0 and MIT licenses, so you are free to do whatever you want with it as long as you respect the terms from these two.

If you are a highly paid worker at Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Palantir, Uber, Airbnb, Deliveroo, or any other company that prioritises profit over people as strongly as they do, you can still use this crate. I simply wish you will unionise and push back against the obsession for growth, control, and power that is rampant in your workplace. Please take a stand against the horrible working conditions they inflict on your lesser paid colleagues, and more generally their gross disrespect for the very human rights they claim to fight for.
