  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS

  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • regex

    An implementation of regular expressions for Rust. This implementation uses finite automata and guarantees linear time matching on all inputs.

    Command-Line Rust taught me how to use crates like clap, assert_cmd, and regex. I felt lost before because I didn't know about Rust's ecosystem--which is arguably as important as the language itself. Also, looking up and comparing libraries is a tiring task! blessed.rs is nice but Command-Line Rust really saved me from analysis paralysis.

  • book

    The Rust Programming Language

    This is my third Rust book after the official book and Rust in Action. The other two books are great, but they were too theoretical for me. I'm a slow learner and had much trouble grokking Rust's features and idiosyncrasies. When I was done with these books, I was lost and unsure of what I could do.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • advent-of-code-jq

    Solving Advent of Code with jq

    Apart from the books, I went through Google's Comprehensive Rust course and dabbled with Advent of Code.

  • too-many-lists

    Learn Rust by writing Entirely Too Many linked lists

    Advent of Code was okay until I encounterd a problem that required a graph, tree or linked list to solve, where I hit a wall. Most coding exercises are similar--those requiring arrays and hashmaps and sets are okay, but complex data structures are a PITA. (There is an online course dedicated to linked lists in Rust but I couldn't grok it either). IMO you should simply skip problems that you can't solve with your current knowledge level and move on.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
