RFC822/2822 Sanitizer


World is full of broken code and invalid day times. Sanitize invalid RFC822/2822 inputs into valid chrono date times.

Ammonia 1.0-rc1

Ammonia, the HTML sanitizer that parses fragments the same way that browsers do, is getting a stable API. Please give feedback now, before a bunch of decisions get set in stone.

binaryen-rs: WebAssembly production with Rust.

Binaryen bindings for Rust which you can use to produce WebAssembly binaries!

I'm working on a pet shell project in rust. It uses a lisp dialect for scripting:

It is still in a very initial stage, but I want to replace zsh with it eventually.

esp-rs: Compiling Rust for ESP8266

This build script builds Rust bindings to the ESP8266 Arduino library (support for other libraries installed by PlatformIO is in progress), transpiles Rust to C, then compiles it with PlatformIO.

Info on integrating Rust code into a C codebase

Librsvg, the library for rendering [SVG] files used by GNOME and other Linux Desktop software, is using Rust in their current release. They’ve written up how the build system is integrated, how the FFI is done, how external libraries are handled, and basic information on doing Rust.

Other than needing to have a Rust compiler to build it, it should still feel exactly like a C program.

Introducing elfmalloc, a pure-#rust allocator with performance competitive with jemalloc

@ezrosent and I are happy to announce elfmalloc, a new allocator written in pure Rust!

Quick links:

This project actually involved a number of crates - 9 in total. They are all in this repository, and many are interesting on their own:

  • bagpipe, a fast concurrent bag datastructure
  • bsalloc, a simple “bootstrapping” allocator useful in implementing other allocators
  • mmap-alloc, an allocator backed by direct mapping of memory pages
  • malloc-bind, a utility to implement the C malloc API in terms of a Rust allocator
  • slab-alloc, an implementation of Jeff Bonwick’s slab allocator algorithm
  • object-alloc, a trait for object allocators in Rust
  • object-alloc-test, a test suite for object allocators including memory corruption detection

This project is still in its early phases, there is a lot of work to do, and we would love contributions! See for details.

LDN.RS Learning and Hacking #2

We’re gonna to be joined by not one, but two other Rust groups: Rome and Cambridge! Come join the 20 Rustaceans already signed up for this free event!

Diesel 0.16 released

Important changes/new features:

  • A call to joinable! is needed to indicate two tables can be joined. It is added automatically by infer_schema! and is now part of the output of diesel print-schema
  • You can alias column names, e.g. to make them valid Rust identifiers (again, schema inference does this automatically for you by appending an underscore)
  • Schema inference will now generate doc comments. You can get the same with output with diesel print-schema --with-docs
  • New type support: Decimal, Blob, and Datetime for MySQL, Range types for Postgres

More details in the changelog.

Looking for questions to add to the Rust FAQ

The official Rust FAQ needs some love. It hasn’t seen any serious updates since it initially launched, and it doesn’t cover a variety of areas that it should.

So, just like when the FAQ was first being worked on, we’re looking for suggestions for questions that should be added!

Please come share your ideas on the Rust user forum!
