I've written my first Rust library! 🦀
It's called fakedata_generator and I just released v0.2.0 yesterday!
It's a small lib that can generate random strings for you, e.g. random cat breeds or random dinosaur names or (very limited) domain and e-Mail names.
It's in its early stages but can be used as is!
I'm unable to access the GitHub API from Rust using the code here https://gist.github.com/kevingimbel/fbcdfbf8195594a157d7bcee3317d287
Anyone got any idea? I always get a 403 error back, but the same request with `curl` works just fine.
It's driving me mad!
I love that I got so many responses to my post about Rust match syntax ( 👉 https://bullgit.party/@kevin/103916518306017536)
Thanks to everyone, I've learned a ton of stuff from all the responses.
Brody Dalle singing "Dressed in Dreams" in a room filled with colorful lights is my jam.
@kevin for the sake of showing the match syntax, this is valid... but just so you know, it is possible to write that same thing in way less code: https://play.rust-lang.org/?version=stable&mode=debug&edition=2018&gist=82fe60181038e4dbcd2d77042f7588af

No joke I totally love #Rust for its match syntax.
Checking for three environment variables, returning the first match and returning a standard if none matched:
I'm having the biggest celeb crush on Brody Dalle. That voice. 😍
With a "Run on save" third-party extension you can run mktoc on every save which is _awesome_.

A few months ago I thought to myself: "Why not build a Table of Content generator in Rust?" and I did it and I've been using it ever since almost daily.
Just now I found out that it completely breaks when the markdown file contains a Rust derive in a code block.
Building this tiny tool taught me a lot about parsing text and I'm really glad I did it the hard way without using any markdown crates.
Here's a funny bug: If you buy Dishonored Definite Edition from the German Playstation store and your PlayStation language is anything but German the game will be French.
I assume this is the default language since Arkane Studios is a French studio. There's no way to play the Definite Edition in any language but German and French.
Somehow ended up in tech, currently doing DevOps & cloud stuff on AWS professionally.
