ent 0.0.4

Abstract object entity for JSON, PyDict, & others

Ent   Build Crate

Ent is an abstract object library. Using Rust's monomorphization, you can write zero cost interfaces across multiple object types including JSON and Python dictionaries. If you are interested in contributing to Ent, please do! We would welcome any help including additional object implementations.

Warning: Ent is in early development. There may be a more generic approach to this problem that utilizes serde's Visitor.

Getting Started


# Specify supported implementations using feature keys:
#  - python
#  - json
ent = { version = "0.1", features = ["python"] }


use ent::Ent;

fn get_name<E: Ent>(e: &E) -> Result<&str> {

let v: serde_json::Value = serde_json::from_str(r#"{"name":"test"}"#).unwrap();
let ref name = get_name(&v).unwrap();
assert_eq!(name, &"test")
