Randy Abernethy commented on THRIFT-4574:
-----------------------------------------

I agree, It would be nice to have a pure C implementation of Thrift. Patches welcome!

> Thrift has a support for C language called c_glib. This generator creates a stub for
C language that uses quite glib library. glib library is quite heavy dependency and for some cases
(like low level software) is not acceptable. One need a generator that does not have any dependencies
to third-party libs and ideally neither to libc.
> nanopb project tries to achieve it for Protobufs. It would be great to see something
similar for Thrift. Here is more information about nanopb [http://jpa.kapsi.fi/nanopb/docs/concepts.html]
> There is an attempt to implement such generator [https://github.com/markrileybot/thrift-nano] but
it might require additional efforts to make the implementation up-to-date and complete.
