RMP - Rust MessagePack
RMP is a pure Rust MessagePack implementation.
This repository consists of three separate crates: the RMP core and two implementations to ease serializing and deserializing Rust structs.
RMP is designed to be lightweight and straightforward. There are low-level API, which gives you full control on data encoding/decoding process and makes no heap allocations. On the other hand there are high-level API, which provides you convenient interface using Rust standard library and compiler reflection, allowing to encode/decode structures using
Zero-copy value decoding
RMP allows to decode bytes from a buffer in a zero-copy manner easily and blazingly fast, while Rust static checks guarantees that the data will be valid as long as the buffer lives.
Clear error handling
RMP's error system guarantees that you never receive an error enum with unreachable variant.
Robust and tested
This project is developed using TDD and CI, so any found bugs will be fixed without breaking existing functionality.
- Rust 1.16
This project adheres to Semantic Versioning. However until 1.0.0 comes there will be the following rules:
- Any API/ABI breaking changes will be notified in the changelog explicitly and results in minor version bumping.
- API extending features results in patch version bumping.
- Non-breaking bug fixes and performance improving results in patch version bumping.
