Collecting HashMap

This is a HashMap that allows the user to store multiple V values for each K key. Currently it is implemented by internally keeping a HashMap<K, Vec<V>> and forwarding most operations to that HashMap. There area few calls where it does more than just forward, in order to keep the API as functionally similar to a regular HashMap<K, V> as possible. The main difference is with the insert method. Since it won't replace the original value if you insert another value for the same K, this insert returns nothing.

The get and get_mut methods have the same signature as a regular HashMap<K, V>. Instead of returning the whole underlying Vec for a key, get and get_mut both return a reference to the first item in the Vec. In order to get a reference to the whole Vec for a key, use get_all and get_all_mut.

The Entry API operates on the entire underlying Vec for a key.


use collecting_hashmap::CollectingHashMap;

let mut map = CollectingHashMap::new();
map.insert("voltron", "black");
map.insert("voltron", "red");
map.insert("voltron", "green");
map.insert("voltron", "blue");
map.insert("voltron", "yellow");
assert_eq!(map.get_all("voltron"), Some(&vec!["black", "red", "green", "blue", "yellow"]));
use collecting_hashmap::CollectingHashMap;

let query_string = vec![
    ("q", "query1"),
    ("t", "0m2s"),
    ("q", "query2"),
    ("q", "query3"),
let map = query_string.into_iter().collect::<CollectingHashMap<_, _>>();
assert_eq!(map.get_all("q"), Some(&vec!["query1", "query2", "query3"]));
