  • rust-base64

    base64, in rust

    Funny that you claim base64 forbids unsafe code while linking a PR where the current maintainer of the crate explicitly agrees that unsafe for the purpose of SIMD-acceleration is a-okay. Did you by any chance meant to link instead? ;)

  • simd

    SIMD-accelerated operations (by Nugine)


  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • uuid

    Generate and parse UUIDs. (by uuid-rs)

    A: For uuid, the maintainer perfers to wait for stdsimd instead of maintaining different implementations.

  • rust-hex

    A basic crate to encode values to hexadecimal representation. Originally extracted from rustc-serialize.

    For hex, there are already two opening PRs.

  • faster-hex

    fast hex

    For faster-hex, there is already a PR opening for more than one year.

  • nuuid

    Uuid library for Rust

    I have a uuid crate here that would be open to using simd today

  • ulid-rs

    This is a Rust implementation of the ulid project

  • SonarLint

    Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!. SonarLint is a free and open source IDE extension that identifies and catches bugs and vulnerabilities as you code, directly in the IDE. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • portable-simd

    The testing ground for the future of portable SIMD in Rust

  • ulid-lite

    Generate unique, yet sortable identifiers

    I have a fast implementation of the ulid format. When I created it, it was the fastest implementation available
