A Rust Cookbook   Build Status travis

Read it here.

This Rust Cookbook is a collection of simple Rust examples that demonstrate good practices to accomplish common programming tasks, using the crates of the Rust ecosystem.

These examples are complete, and suitable for copying directly into new cargo projects. They are tested and guaranteed to work.
