Crate serde_scale_wrap[][src]

Expand description


Wrapper for types implementing Serialize/Deserialize to implement Encode/Decode automatically.


extern crate alloc;

use alloc::string::String;
use parity_scale_codec::{Decode, Encode};
use serde::{Deserialize, Serialize};
use serde_scale_wrap::Wrap;

#[derive(Debug, Deserialize, PartialEq, Serialize)]
struct Foo {
    x: i32,
    s: String,

let original = Foo { x: 3, s: "foo".into() };
let serialized = Wrap(&original).encode();
let Wrap(deserialized) = Wrap::<Foo>::decode(&mut &*serialized).unwrap();
assert_eq!(original, deserialized);


Option<bool> is serialized as a single byte according to the SCALE encoding, which differs from the result of Encode::encodeEncode expects OptionBool to be used instead.


no_std is supported by disabling default features.

  • std: Support for std. It is enabled by default.

🔖 Features enabled in build dependencies and proc-macros are also enabled for normal dependencies, which may cause serde to have its std feature on when it is not desired. Nightly cargo prevents this from happening with -Z features=host_dep or the following in .cargo/config:

features = ["host_dep"]

For example, this issue arises when depending on parity-scale-codec-derive.
