  • bracket-lib

    The Roguelike Toolkit (RLTK), implemented for Rust.

    Project mention: Does anyone care about CLI/TUI games? | /r/rust | 2023-04-02

    I think having to use a terminal is the scary part for many people. rltk/bracket-lib can be used to get a similar look and feel if that's what's important, but it is geared toward roguelikes.

    Project mention: Learning Rust by Building a CLI App | | 2023-08-25

    Lastly, after accepting user input it reached the time for displaying what we have in our database. I did not want to use the same old println macro for this. Then came the research part for a cargo package that could satisfy this requirement. I wanted the library to be able to display the database records i a tabular format, and thus found the prettytabl-rs cargo package. It is an easy to use package and so I chose it.

  • rspotify

    Spotify Web API SDK implemented in Rust (by ramsayleung)

    Project mention: How to use rspotify? | /r/rust | 2023-05-28

    Apologies for the stupid question but I'm fairly new to Rust and can't figure out for the life of me how to use the rspotify crate. As far as I can get with the documentation / examples is just that it isn't a regular application / binary of itself but just a crate, but I don't see why that's causing me issues. Whenever I try to run the following example, I get the following error, despite me trying to remove and rebuild the crate just in case.

    Project mention: Posting asking if the Rust Reddit community is overly regulated gets regulated. | /r/programmingcirclejerk | 2023-05-27

    This crate of mine for example is currently literally unusable until the deeply fundamental features that John Random kinda-sorta removed in this pull request, ostensibly in preparation for whatever shittily stated syntax is ultimately establihed by whatever the hell "keyword generics" actually is (I really don't know, like this isn't a joke, I fundamentally do not understand what the fuck they're proposing at all in any way or how it's meaningfully and usefullly different from the previous syntax).
