    Project mention: Should an existing Rust project switch from two-space tabs to four-space tabs to match the Rust style guide? | | 2021-11-26

    I'm the co-author of an existing Rust project that uses two-space tabs. I personally prefer two-space tabs, but was thinking that maybe we should switch to four-space tabs, since it's the standard, to make it easier for new contributors, and possibly more familiar for people looking at the code.

  • feeless

    ⋰·⋰ Feeless is a Nano cryptocurrency node, wallet, tools, and Rust crate.

    Project mention: Purpose of multiple accounts per seed in Nault | | 2021-12-18

    If you care that much about it, when you generate a seed you can divine a private key from your seed at an account index, and import the private key instead of a seed. By doing that, you will only have access to one address at the specified index height. You can use tools like feeless to help you do this.

    Farcaster Core Library.

    Project mention: Farcaster community update April | | 2021-04-30

    Farcaster-core and -chains contain the building blocks for building atomic swap nodes. They now include logic for creating and validating transactions needed for the XMR/BTC protocol. It creates and encodes protocol messages that have to be passed between the counterparties involved in a swap. It does not include cross group discrete-log equality proofs and adaptor signatures yet. Exciting work ahead!
