vec1 1.8.0

a std Vec wrapper assuring that it has at least 1 element

vec1 vec1 License License

This crate provides a rust std::vec::Vec wrapper with type guarantees to contain at least 1 element. This is useful if you build a API which sometimes has such constraints e.g. you need at least one target server address but there can be more.


extern crate vec1;

use vec1::Vec1;

fn main() {
    // vec1![] makes sure there is at least one element
    // at compiler time
    //let names = vec1! [ ];
    let names = vec1! [ "Liz" ];

fn greet(names: Vec1<&str>) {
    // methods like first/last which return a Option on Vec do
    // directly return the value, we know it's possible
    let first = names.first();
    println!("hallo {}", first);
    for name in names.iter().skip(1) {
        println!("  who is also know as {}", name)

Support for serde::{Serialize, Deserialize}

The Vec1 type supports both of serde's Serialize and Deserialize traits, but this feature is only enabled when the "serde" feature flag is specified in your project's Cargo.toml file:

# Cargo.toml

vec1 = { version = "...", features = ["serde"] }
