Rust generics are great, but they can bloat the final code, and have negative effects on compile times. This post discusses a "trick" to help fight those effects.

Network Coordinates and Vivaldi

Imagine you have a distributed system and need to answer something like, "Which node is closest to Node X?" or perhaps "Which N nodes are closest to Node Y?"

CLI Shell Completions in Rust

Taking a look at adding shell completions to CLI programs using Rust.

In this post we add shell completions to the XKCD CLI utility we made earlier. We'll show how easy it is to support multiple shells, and generate the completions both at compile time and/or run time.
