  • Security of crates.io
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-15
    You don't. Most of the folks I've talked to run an internal mirror. Some do it by manually sneakernetting updated crates over to the mirror on the isolated network. Some do it by having the mirror and dev resources on a connected network, but have the mirror server be a proxy as well - when the crate isn't in the mirror the proxy fetches it from crates.io, then scans it, then stores it on the mirror and then provides to the requestor. I haven't used that myself, but it's how it was described to me.
  • Agora 0.1.0 released: Rust web server for selling for sats using LN
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-14
    Agora is also the name of the DSL used to describe query fees for GraphQL in The Graph. https://github.com/graphprotocol/agora. Seems I should have published to crates.io earlier. Lesson learned.
  • RUST
    The way Rust heavily encourages things like Option and Result over sentinel values in libraries also improves the exception safety of programs using a library. Not to mention every library (on the official crate registry, at least) is documented in the same format, and in an easily-discoverable way.

  • Working on an operating system, built from scratch, using Rust
    Hello! I am currently working on an operating system, which I plan to work on for the indefinite future. I created an organization on GitHub, and I have begun to rewrite crates for the kernel to use. I also publish said crates to crates.io. If you know Rust, and you enjoy programming operating systems, then create an issue on a repository, or send me a message. I am going to create some kind of chatroom or something to communicate with the team. I am currently the only developer.
  • Rust got me back into programming, after being away for a few years, and I am looking for some advice on how to improve my code. :)
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-09
    Hello! As the title says, I have been pulled back into programming, and Rust is almost entirely responsible. I began programming when I was 11 or so, and I am 20 now, so I am really loving how I can actually understand what I am learning. I bought the physical copy of the Rust book, and I have been reading it slowly (I love reading, but I read slowly, and I want to process what I read before I continue). I am working on my own operating system, as I have wanted to make my own OS for years, and I have been fascinated with how much goes into every little thing in a system. I created an organization on GitHub, and I also publish my crates to crates.io. I find some crates that are interesting, I download them, and I try to recreate them. I never copy and paste, and I go out of my way to change things and make something that it mine, rather than ripping somebody off.
  • Call For Raku Infrastructure Volunteers

    Triaging issues found in a so called "crater" run; Crater is a tool that tests _every_ single library on crates.io, prior to a release. This would be cool to do with zef, right?
  • rust get help syntax
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-03
    What is the rust's get help syntax? Is there an equivalent of python's help(module_name) How can I know about the functions, arguments, methods, of the imported crates and know how to use them? I am using crate fits-rs for which crates.io does not have good documentation and I am new to rust. So I am not able to find out on my own. I want to read keywords in the header, and extract lists from the fits file using that crate.
  • What scripting language and what implementation would you use with your program written in Rust?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-03
    doesn't really appear on the crates.io page of mlua.
  • Simple intro about writing dockerfile in rust project
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-01
    I'm consider how to make use of it, because my network to crates.io is too slow to install cargo-chef during build time, I'm sadly find out cargo-chef prebuild image doesn't support nightly rust.
  • Beginner trying to learn Rust, need advices.
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-30
    Python is a "batteries are included" language, with minimal syntax and with a big standard library. Rust on the other hand has a comparatively small standard library. Rust addresses this by having the cargo dependency manager and crates.io . Rust has a C-like syntax and adds more syntax to address ownership, borrowing and to manage lifetimes.
  • Idea: A place where people can look for work to contribute
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-28
    Could we have a web crawler that would go through every crate on crates.io then look through github issues with help-wanted label. And then display summary on a central website.
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-28
    One thing that we could do is leverage crates.io categories and sort issues by category and tag.
  • Where do I document a published crate?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-27
    The standard place that most people will check is docs.rs, so I'd recommend putting as much as possible in doc comments, to make it easily navigable. You can put documentation = "https://docs.rs/crate-name/x.y.z" in Cargo.toml if you want to make it slightly more discoverable (iirc https://crates.io doesn't show a docs.rs link otherwise? which seems weird to me. I tend to use https://lib.rs which does) but yea, rustdoc/docs.rs is where the documentation for 99.9% of crates lives.
  • Is Rust a big language?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-26
    Maybe look at the popular crates on https://crates.io to get an idea of what people are missing the most might give an idea? (But a lot of it is macro stuff)
