  • Is rustfmt abandoned? Will it ever format `let ... else` syntax?
    7 projects | /r/rust | 3 Jun 2023
    Instead, what I'm talking about is that there is a (generally large) cost to contributions that maintainers have to pay. Rarely is a contribution merge-ready on the first pass. Instead, a maintainer has to work with the person to get it ready. The amount this is needed varies according to the needs of a project. People generally underestimate the complexity of a project their are contributing to. Take cargo build --dependencies-only which people want for docker caching. Frequently people bump the thread, thinking its trivial, saying how to resolve it, and are annoyed that it isn't solved. Thankfully one person stepped back and looked at the bigger picture, realized what the maintainers were trying to say, and wrote up a great report on what the challenge is. Similar for XDG support. Each iteration for each PR is also represents a context switch for the maintainer. Keeping up on all of this across all of their projects, especially when its spare time, means they also need to come back up to speed on this each time.
  • Let's thank who have helped us in the Rust Community together!
    9 projects | /r/rust | 28 May 2023
    Next, I'd like to extend my thanks to u/epage. epage maintains several famous crates like clap, cargo-edit, toml_edit, and more. epage is not afraid of engaging in heated debates with others. Such a characteristic helps move things forward, as seen with the support for lints table in Cargo.toml and MSRV support in dependency resolution.
  • Report on platform-compliance for cargo directories
    9 projects | /r/rust | 23 May 2023
    But in the future, Cargo might want more directories for different purposes: - data (for installing other stuff like manpages, see - state (for storing CLI history or maintaining internal state between runs for some novel features)

  • [Gitoxide in April] A first step towards `gix status` and `.gitattributes` matching
    6 projects | /r/rust | 22 May 2023
    If nothing more it's useful for Rust projects that need a git library. eg: cargo, cargo-generate

  • Solution-diffusion model in Rust
    2 projects | | 15 May 2023
    I have choosen Rust, because it is a fast, low level language. It has comparable performance to C and C++, but unlike them it has a built-in and streamlined solution for package management and documentation generation. I was able to use them in 5 minutes as a first timer.
  • Is Rust's cargo-edit crate still relevant?
    2 projects | /r/rust | 12 May 2023
    Also cargo set-version is part of cargo-edit which is incredibly convenient for setting the build version from CI since Cargo still doesn’t provide a means of overriding the version on the command line.
  • Rust Offline?
    9 projects | /r/rust | 4 May 2023
    Do note that cargo vendor can’t handle duplicated dependencies 1. Not a very widespread issue, but there are some projects that (even intentionally) have duplicated dependencies, which prevents this command from working with them.
  • Sudden 99% + Build Time Improvement Going from 1.66.1 to 1.71.0
    3 projects | /r/rust | 3 May 2023
    1.70 Upgrade to LLVM 16 1.69 Debuginfo for build dependencies is now off if not explicitly set. This is expected to improve the overall build time.
