Rust Firebird Client

Build Crate API

A Firebird client library to Rust programing language

How to use it

  1. Start choosing the lib variation you want
// For use the compile time linked version
// Or using the runtime loaded lib
// Or using the pure rust implementation
  1. Set your connection params
// For a remote server
let mut conn = ConnectionBuilder::linked()
// Or if you need a embedded/local only access
let mut conn = ConnectionBuilder::linked()
  1. Now you can use the lib
let rows = conn.query_iter("select col_a, col_b, col_c from test", ())?;

Cargo features

All features can be used at the same time if needed.


Will use the dynamic library of the official fbclient at runtime and compiletime. Used in systems where there is already a firebird client installed and configured.


Can find the official fbclient native library by path at runtime, does not need the library at compiletime. Useful when you need to build in a system without a firebird client installed.


Uses a pure rust implementation of the firebird wire protocol, does not need the native library at all. Useful for cross-compilation and allow a single binary to be deployed without needing to install the firebird client.
