What's everyone working on this week (46/2018)?


#1

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


#2

I’m trying to figure out a way to get all the docs.rs / crates.io packages I need … and store them offline, so I even if I have no internet connection (RV trip, cruise, etc …), I can still develop rust.


#3

@zeroexcuses: cargo-vendor might be useful.


Working on better handling of when a game round has ended. Apparently instant-jump-to-title-screen when someone wins isn’t good user experience.


#4

@zeroexcuses cargo doc automatically builds dependency docs. You can copy them off the target folder somewhere safe (in case you do a clean or something).


#5

I start research of error index message and examples by implementing tests as a source code. I think it is simple for developers to understand (at first for me) a big file of text dividing it to the peace of small test projects. The study of compiler errors and ways to eliminate them is very interesting, even fascinating, I would say.


#6

Going through the last section of “the Book” (building a multi-thread web server), and then beginning work on a super simple, low resource message queue system in Rust. Really excited!


#7

I started porting Chuck Walbourn’s win32 DirectX11 project template from C++ to Rust.
Progress can be seen here: https://github.com/ArmsOfSorrow/win32-d3d-template


#8

Working on a naive implementation of an Entity Component System for my Dissertation!


#9

is that implementation going to become “less naive” as you progress with your dissertation? :slight_smile:


#10

yep! going to be increasing complexity up until I hopefully hit performance seen in the C/C++ space of ECS’. The main objective of the dissertation is to show that Rust is a great alternative to C/C++ :slight_smile:


#11

Cool :slight_smile: But if it’s for your dissertation, that means you probably cannot publish it any time soon, right?


#12

I’m trying to reimplement leveldb in Rust.


#13

Waiting 2018 edition


#14

Maybe JAMstack is a bit of a hype right now, but I do use Static Site Generators for quiet some time to create my web pages. So far I have been using Jekyll, but I really wanted to use Rust instead of Ruby, so I started investigating Gutenberg. I also registered a new domain for a Rust project of mine, which deserves it’s own web page:

https://www.rs-pbrt.org/about/

Not much there yet, but it will be filled with content over the next few month. Hopefully at the end of the year I gathered all the information about things I have already implemented around the Rust based PBRT implementation and then I will post a Call for Participation here

#15

Yep, it will be done by May I think, but hopefully sooner :slight_smile:


#16

I started work on a layer-2 blockchain node written in rust :heart:

This is my very first rust project and I am very new to the language. So far, I love the concepts and design decisions of rust :hugs:


#17

Just wrote the command line utility webpacker-cli allowing any web framework to use Webpacker. And I also wrote a Rust library for using it webpacker-rs.

Webpacker allows you to conveniently pre-process, pack, and map assets for your website including CSS, SASS, CoffeeScript, React, VueJS, Images, and others. Also it uses version hashing to invalidate caches clients have of old sources.
