Rust advent 🦀 🐚


Learning Rust by implementing solutions for Advent of Code problems.

🎥 HEY, we are live-streaming our attempts to solve the exercises in this repo! Check us out on:

Eugen, Roberto and Luciano trying to solve Advent of Code in Rust

And remember to follow and subscribe! 😎 😋


This repo contains some code that is bespoke to Raspberry Pi Pico, therefore you need to install some additional dependencies:

rustup target install thumbv6m-none-eabi


cargo install flip-link

How to run tests for all exercises

Simply execute:

cargo test

If you want to run only one test for a given part of an exercise you can run something like this:

cargo test --package ex01 --lib --all-features -- tests::part_2

Create a new exercise

New: You can now use the scaffold.mjs script to create a new exercise. Simply run:

./scaffold.mjs <year> <day>

(Note: it requires zx to be installed).

Alternatively, you can create a new exercise manually by following these steps:

Cd into the specific year folder (e.g. y2020) and run:

cargo new --lib exNN

Replace NN with the number of exercise for the given year. For instance:

cargo new --lib ex01

Finally add the new subproject in the workspace by editing the main Cargo.toml. For instance, assuming you just created y2020/ex10:

members = [
  # ...
  "y2020/ex10" # <- new entry
