Build stable, maintainable Rust applications by applying these important code and architectural design patterns.
In Rust Design Patterns
you’ll learn how to apply important design patterns including:
Rust Design Patterns
- Fluent interfaces for creating delightful APIs
- The Builder pattern to encapsulate data and perform initialization
- Immutable data structures that help you avoid hard-to-debug data race conditions
- Functional programming patterns
- Anti-patterns and what not to do in Rust
introduces reusable best practices that will help you solve common programming problems and ensure your code is easy for others to understand. Learn when to use each design pattern, as well as when to break it. This practical guide catalogs, documents, and describes both how classic design patterns work with Rust, and the new Rust-specific patterns that will help you master the language.
about the book
Rust Design Patterns
presents dozens of established programming and architecture solutions that take advantage of Rust’s unique language design. You’ll start with the basics of generics and traits, using them as a foundation to rapidly progress to metaprogramming, building your own libraries, and even advanced patterns like fluent interfaces and making immutable structures.
Throughout this unique book, you’ll find useful code samples that are easy to adapt and reuse for your own projects. Hone your Rust skills with functional programming techniques, and explore examples of common anti-patterns so you know mistakes to avoid. You’ll soon have an in-depth understanding of when and how to apply each design pattern, and even create your very own!
about the reader
For Rust programmers of all skill levels. Beginners will find studying design patterns a great way to evolve their skills beyond the basics. Experienced Rustceans will benefit from tips and tricks that help speed up delivery and make full use of Rust’s lesser-known features.
