  • How to deal with unmaintained crates? (eg. yaml-rust)

    Some context, In my day job, I'm working on a custom format that is based on yaml but extends it. We're still using C++, so we the used yaml-cpp as a base for our parser and it was great for that purpose. laying with rust on Advent of Code lately I also got sent back to reality... Not having rust enums, match, great string handling, iterators when working with my AST was hard. So I wanted to try to implement the same parser in Rust as an example to my teammates of how great rust can be.

    I've found is yaml-cpp. The API seems fine

    I've searched around, and the only thing I've found is yaml-cpp. The API seems fine, but I'm not satisfied with the docs. There's a little tutorial which covers most of the stuff that I'd want to know; but it doesn't properly address error handling. I'm not going to use a library if I don't know what it does in the case of an error! As far as I can find, the only docs are the tutorial, and an api reference which is difficult to navigate, and doesn't seem to have much meaningful information. There is also an 'old tutorial', which seem to refer to an older version of yaml-cpp; and so presumably it isn't relevant any longer.

    If you want a file format that has more readability, YAML is probably your best bet.
