A utility library for working with bytes. Build Status



To use bytes, first add this to your Cargo.toml:

bytes = "1"

Next, add this to your crate:

use bytes::{Bytes, BytesMut, Buf, BufMut};

Serde support

Serde support is optional and disabled by default. To enable use the feature serde.

bytes = { version = "1", features = ["serde"] }
