  • quickcpplib

    Eliminate all the tedious hassle when making state-of-the-art C++ 14 - 23 libraries!

    I know the right design in my opinion here: customisable accessor based, like how https://github.com/ned14/quickcpplib/blob/master/include/quickcpplib/algorithm/bitwise_trie.hpp does things. Then you get application flexibility, rather than the rigidity a STL container forces you into (which BTW is great if that suits you, but it sucks if it doesn't). Obviously one can implement a corresponding STL container from the same algorithm easily,
