Top 16 C++ Unicode Projects

  • C++ Format

    A modern formatting library

  • Project mention: C++ left arrow operator (2016) | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-24

    Continuation passing monads form the basis of a perfectly valid and usable software architecture and programming pattern.

    In the case of ostream and operator<<, this pattern reduces the number of intermediate objects that would otherwise be constructed.

    If you object to iostream on religious or stylistic grounds, there's always fmt which is more like Go or Python string interpolation.[0]

    A few more ASCII-based tool that you could add into your workflow are https://arthursonzogni.com/Diagon/#Sequence which can be used to generate the ASCII that you input into something like Typogram (https://google.github.io/typograms/).

    For example, input:

      Renderer -> Browser: BeginNavigation()

  • simdutf

    Unicode routines (UTF8, UTF16, UTF32) and Base64: billions of characters per second using SSE2, AVX2, NEON, AVX-512, RISC-V Vector Extension. Part of Node.js and Bun.

  • Project mention: Decoding UTF8 with Parallel Extract | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-05

    IIRC all of the simdutf implementations use a lot of lookup tables except for the AVX512 and RVV backens.

    Here is e.g. the NEON code: https://github.com/simdutf/simdutf/blob/1b8ca3d1072a8e2e1026...

  • neo

  • text

    A spicy text library for C++ that has the explicit goal of enabling the entire ecosystem to share in proper forward progress towards a bright Unicode future. (by soasis)

  • Project mention: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Must Know About Unicode in 2023 | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-02

    It sounds like a generic length function in Unicode in 2023 is no longer a good idea. These articles complaining about the variety of lengths in Unicode are annoying at this point. Pretty much all of them can be summed up as, "Well, it depends." And, that isn't wrong. But nerds love to argue until they are blue in the face about the One Correct Answer. Sheesh.

    This is the most interesting comparison article I have seen in years about Unicode processing in C++: https://thephd.dev/the-c-c++-rust-string-text-encoding-api-l...

    The author is also the lead on an open source C++ Unicode library called ztd.txt: https://github.com/soasis/text
