  • impl serde::Deserialize... is it really that complicated?
    2 projects | | 28 Apr 2022
    Step 1: The Deserialize type requests data from the Deserializer with one of the deserialize_type methods. This gives it an opportunity to provide certain metadata about the type: structs provide a list of fields, enums provide a list of variants, tuples provide a length, etc. Some data formats (notably bincode) require this metadata to drive deserializing, as the wire format is not self-describing. Crucially, the Deserialize type also provides a visitor that is capable of receiving the requested data from the Deserializer.

    Alternatively, give Bincode a try.

    If you can use std, have you had a look at the crate [bincode]( If you can't use std, I've found the crate [bincode-nostd]( which is old but maybe you can find something similar and more recent?
  • Hey Rustaceans! Got an easy question? Ask here (9/2022)!

    Like separate instructions? I was thinking if a instruction have unknown length I make sure I have some kind of header field that tells the data length of the instruction so receiver knows when next instruction starts. And I was planning on using Bincode with serde to serialize and dezerialize like structs and stuff.
  • Easily converts a struct into Vec<u8> and back.

    Isn't this essentially bincode?
  • Does rust have function works like eval?

    This is similar in practice to using abi_stable, and end-users will still receive compiled files, but your plugins will be sandboxed and a single build will work on all platforms. The downside is that it's a bit more work because WebAssembly's support for passing complex data types between the host and the WebAssembly code is in the preliminary stages, so you need to do something like using Serde to encode your data into something like Bincode or MessagePack (or JSON and friends) to hand it off between the host and the plugin.
  • Storing variable data structures

    What kind of access do you need to the data ? You should be able to make a safe api to the Vec class by iterating on in in chunks, and using a closure to translate data between u8 and other representations. ( f32, u32 has the fomr_ne_bytes() / to_ne_bytes() methods ) You could make a helper function that takes a format description ( i.e. "fffuucc" , and calculates the size of the chunk, and generates a closure for reading accessing the data, of the layout is completely dynamic. This closure could use an enum to wrap the different primitive types. ) Or if the layouts are known at compile time , you could use procedural macros to generate code for serializaion / deserialization inot the the [u8] , though may already do that for you )
  • Serde Bincode not De-serializing Bools?
    1 project | | 14 May 2021
    Apparently there's a lot of discussion going on about that (3 of the 4 open tickets on the bincode implementation are about it), for example this one.
  • Netcode & ECS data organization

    The network manager handles serializing it into a binary format (using the bincode crate, sending it out to other clients on a separate IO thread etc. I'm not exactly sure how bincode handles the serializations, but it allows me to automatically derive ways for a struct (in this case, Snapshot) to be serialized and desterilized to/from raw bytes which can be sent/received over the network.

  • If you could re-design Rust from scratch today, what would you change?

    I've built type-specific hacks to avoid this which produce up to 50% runtime improvements. Latest one is in this PR: The standard library should provide a way to sidestep the copy through a pointer. Useful BufRead/BufWrite traits would be a good start.

    I think you could use serde with the Bincode format for this.
