How to use AsyncRead compatibility layer with Futures 0.3


I want to use tokio_codec::FramedRead to break a type implementing AsyncRead into frames, however, I could not find any equivalent implementation of tokio_codec for Futures 0.3

Futures 0.3 have a compatibility util allowing to convert types from Futures 0.3 to Futures 0.1. The relevant code can be seen here:

I plan to use it as follows:

use futures_util::compat::{Compat, Stream01CompatExt, Executor01CompatExt, Future01CompatExt};
use tokio_codec::FramedRead;
use frame_codec::FrameCodec;
/* ... */
let reader = FramedRead::new(async_reader.compat(), FrameCodec::new())

However, I didn’t manage to make this code compile.
Note that the code at requires the io-compat feature to be enabled.
The relevant part of my Cargo.toml:

futures-preview = "0.3.0-alpha.7"
futures-util-preview = {version = "0.3.0-alpha.7", features = ["compat", "io-compat"]}

Trying to compile results with the following error:

$ cargo test
error: failed to select a version for `futures-util-preview`.
    ... required by package `cswitch-utils v0.1.0 (/home/real/projects/d/cswitch/components/utils)`
    ... which is depended on by `cswitch-crypto v0.1.0 (/home/real/projects/d/cswitch/components/crypto)`
    ... which is depended on by `cswitch-secure-channel v0.1.0 (/home/real/projects/d/cswitch/components/secure_channel)`
versions that meet the requirements `= 0.3.0-alpha.7` are: 0.3.0-alpha.7

the package `cswitch-utils` depends on `futures-util-preview`, with features: `io-compat` but `futures-util-preview` does not have these features.

failed to select a version for `futures-util-preview` which could resolve this conflict

If I omit the io-compat feature from Cargo.toml, I get a different compile error. The relevant part of the error message:

I might be missing something trivial here.
Any ideas are welcome!


Note that io-compat is not available in the 0.3.0-alpha.7 release, it was only just merged 5 days ago. You can depend on futures-util-preview = { git = "", features = ["io-compat"] } to get access to it before there’s a new release, but there is at least 1 bug in the compat layer as implemented in alpha.7 and master.


@Nemo157: Thanks! It’s great to know. In that case I have something to look forward to (:
