[][src]Crate many_to_many

This is a very simple crate which you can use for creating many-to-many data structures in Rust, it's intended purpose or use case is for situations where you need to map a set of ids to another set of ids (for example in PubSub, such as hive_pubsub which is what this crate was designed for). It does this by using two HashMaps, one linking Left to a set of Right and vice-versa.

This crate is like a fusion of bimap and multimap. I didn't see anything like this on crates.io, or anywhere really so I made my own thing.


Keys on either side (left or right) must implement the following traits:


use many_to_many::ManyToMany;

let mut map = ManyToMany::new();
map.insert(1, 2);
map.insert(1, 3);
map.insert(1, 4);

assert_eq_sorted(map.get_left(&1), vec![ 2, 3, 4 ]);

map.insert(5, 2);
map.remove(&1, &4);

assert_eq_sorted(map.get_left(&1), vec![ 2, 3 ]);
assert_eq_sorted(map.get_right(&2), vec![ 1, 5 ]);

map.remove(&1, &2);
map.remove(&1, &3);

assert_eq!(map.get_left(&1), None);

map.insert(11, 10);
map.insert(12, 10);
map.insert(13, 10);

assert_eq!(map.get_left(&11), None);
assert_eq!(map.get_right(&10), None);

/// This is a helper function to unwrap the option,
/// sort the array and compare it with a sorted array.
fn assert_eq_sorted(a: Option<Vec<i32>>, b: Vec<i32>) {
    let mut list = a.unwrap();
    assert_eq!(list, b);

Serde support

This crate has optional Serde support. To enable it, specify the serde feature in Cargo.toml. For example:

many-to-many = { version = "^0.1.7", features = ["serde"] }
