#Diesel (a #rust ORM-type thingy) is a really cool library - you specify a schema using a very nice DSL that doesn't require any out-of-toolchain codegen (it's implemented using macros, so the compiler does the codegen for you), and then you have a really, really nice, totally typesafe abstraction over SQL.

It also manages migrations, though it doesn't generate them for you.

I'm currently using it with PostgreSQL, and I'm planning to Dockerize the whole bunch.

Technology almost doesn't suck sometimes!

Since I started coding in #Rust again, I’m like “Oh, wait, right, I can use `println` everywhere, there is no IO monad here.” The thing is, it does not feel right nonetheless.

Got my feet wet in #Rust + #OpenGL by writing Conway's Game of Life: github.com/lloydmeta/gol-rs
