Do you want to know what developing without unit tests is like?
Open your shoelaces, close your eyes and run as fast as you can...πŸƒ

So weird: when you have developed so much recently that other imperative, OO-style languages feel like 's (and no, this is not a complimentπŸ˜‰).

And don't you dare to assign aliases to other objects in those languages! It just looks and feels...wrong! Is it mutable? Is is not? Does it get cloned? Oh my what happens here?!😲 What...a thread!?😱

Nice, I've done some improvements regarding csv-diff's diff API:
gitlab.com/janriemer/csv-diff/

So now, you don't have to wrap your bytes or String in a `Cursor` anymore. It is done automatically for you through a new trait.

Fun fact: this wouldn't even be a breaking change, if csv-diff wasn't still in alpha, because `Cursor`, `File` etc. still work as before, no change needed for user code.πŸ’ͺ

Please keep in mind that this is _not_ released yet as a new version.

that you can disallow certain types in your code with (since 1.55):

nnethercote.github.io/perf-boo

This is useful, if you e.g. want to use a faster HashMap (e.g. from ahash) and not the std HashMap.

Ist das jetzt eine Funfrage oder eine Fangfrage? :thinkhappy:

Wow, this looks amazing! 😍

Seeing all these new tools for popping up recently (e.g. , , ...), I've come to the following thought:
There are many MANY web developers out there. What if those web developers suddenly get interested in Rust?

No, is not always bad! Bad performing apps are caused by bad development practices, not _necessarily_ the technology used.

Oops, turns out you can now diff 1 million rows of in only 400ms.πŸš€

All I had to do was to use ahash::AHashMap instead of std HashMap. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

Where did we leave off? Oh, right...might we even be able to...

...CROSS THE 500ms mark!?😱

Next toot will be the official release. Stay tuned.πŸ˜‰

Yay, I fixed the bug!πŸŽ‰
It wasn't a concurrency bug in the traditional sense (it's after all Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―), but rather a code path that was sometimes executed and sometimes not, depending on whether the other thread had a chance to run or not.

New plan: release this within 2021 (as alpha)!😁 🀞

Just found out about cargo-modules, a plugin to show your modules as a tree.

I've seen this in Let's Get Rusty's recent video about modules. It's a great tutorial. Check it out!

Unfortunately, I can't release this as planned.πŸ˜₯
I'm so sorry, but I found a very weird (concurrency!) bug and I don't want to ship it with this bug in it. Real life of a developer, I guess...😞

(I found this bug writing and executing a specific doc test...What!?)

I'm so disappointed right now.😭

I'll look into it after xmas and keep you updated.

I wish you some happy holidays! πŸŽ…
