lift-fail 0.1.0

A library to handle `failure` in an iterable collection.


A library to handle failure in an iterable collection.


Sometimes you'll want to do something where a lot of things can fail at once, usually when doing parallel work. What if some things fail? What if some don't? What if it's all good? This library helps handle that if you use the failure crate to handle errors.

Getting Started

Put this in your Cargo.toml:

lift-fail = "0.1"

Then in your or file:

extern crate lift_fail

Then wherever you need it:

use lift_fail::lift_fail;

Here's a basic use case:

#[macro_use] extern crate failure;
extern crate lift_fail;

use lift_fail::lift_fail;

fn main() {
    let example_vec = vec![
        Err(format_err!("Uh oh")),
        Err(format_err!("Oh no")),

    match lift_fail(example_vec) {
        // We have errors in our vec so we know we won't get a vector of just the
        // correct values. We're lifting up the errors into one.
        Ok(_) => unreachable!(),
        Err(e) => println!("{}", e.cause()),


See the examples directory to see how to use the library is used in other ways.
