What's everyone working on this week (17/2018)?


New week, new Rust! What are you folks up to?


Finishing sprites support in Amethyst and refactoring / writing tests for my rushed implementation of that in my game (aka cleaning up tech debt).


I’m in the progress of adding and testing JSON support to rsbx(cli tool), such that adding --json flag will make it output everything in JSON instead of human readable text.

This makes it really easy to get output values(just use jq) and also integrate into scripts/wrappers and other automation stuff.


I have been learning Rust with Vulkano for one week.

Today I have triedrust for cross-compiling to ARMv7 (chip: rk3288), and just planned to write a web service with Rocket.rs


Last week I spent a few hours making a telegram bot that sends syntax-highlighted versions of all code blocks sent in a chat https://github.com/TheZoq2/telegram-code-bot.

I also ended up finally merging a feature branch which I have been workin on since august into my photo management program flash

This week I plan to continue working on my digital signal analyser, monocle, to get it into a useable state.


I’m working on sets and maps implementations for my small AI library for computer games. There’s going to be a lot of set operations on identifiers, all identifiers are usize, and there’s not going to be more than a few thousands of them at once, so I decided it might be a good moment to write my own, specialized versions of Set and Map which take advantage of that. And it’s also a good way to learn stuff.
So far, benches show it’s 3-4x faster than the std Set :slight_smile:


I’ve been busy with a lot of non-Rust stuff lately, but now I’m slowly getting back into it. I recently worked on a basic I2C API for stm32f0. Now I’m back on LPC82x HAL. I need one final push before I can release version 0.1 on crates.io, and I hope I’ll be able to get that done very soon.


I got imag 0.7.0 out of the door last week. This means bug-fixes this week (0.7.1 is coming up, I already have some patches on the “0.7.x” branch. 0.7.1 will happen early next week I guess), and of course some new features and refactoring being merged this week.

I really hope to get some more modules merged before my departure into my sabatical. Hopefully imag-calendar, but I guess that won’t happen as some features are missing in crates I depend on.
