Project Titlearies-vcx next-gen mobile wrapper


Primary Focus



Implement rust wrapper around aries-vcx  to enable consuming the library in mobile setting using modern FFI approach using uniffi library. Additionally implement aries mediator client to unlock full mobile support.

Additional Information

Currently there's a basic POC
