Array Macro Build Status crates.io badge

Array macro helps initialize arrays. It is useful when initializing large arrays (greater than 32 elements), or arrays of types which do not implement the copy or default traits.

Array macro is implemented in 100% safe Rust.

For further background on the motivation behind this crate, check out this blog post.

Usage

use arr_macro::arr;

fn main() {
    let x: [Option<String>; 3] = arr![None; 3];
    assert_eq!(
        [None, None, None],
        x
    );

    // works with all enum types (and impl copy is not required)
    #[allow(dead_code)]
    enum MyEnum {
        A,
        B
    }
    let _: [MyEnum; 33] = arr![MyEnum::A; 33];

    // Vec::new()
    let _: [Vec<String>; 33] = arr![Vec::new(); 33];

    // or your own struct type
    // and you can even use a counter to behave differently based on the array index
    #[derive(Debug)]
    struct MyStruct {
        member: u16,
    }
    impl MyStruct {
        fn new(member: u16) -> Self {
            MyStruct { member }
        }
    }
    let mut i = 0u16;
    let x: [MyStruct; 33] = arr![MyStruct::new({i += 1; i - 1}); 33];

    assert_eq!(0, x[0].member);
    assert_eq!(1, x[1].member);
    assert_eq!(2, x[2].member);
}
