Write Better Match Statements in Rust

To understand how to optimize the match statements, and hence avoid redundancy, let’s take a simple example. Let’s say we’re writing the logic for parsing the user input for a basic text-based application that adds, removes or gets employees in specific departments.

Serde Rust: Serialization Framework for Rust


*Serde is a framework for serializing and deserializing Rust data structures efficiently and generically.*

You may be looking for:

Serde in action

Click to show Cargo.toml. Run this code in the playground.


# The core APIs, including the Serialize and Deserialize traits. Always
# required when using Serde. The "derive" feature is only required when
# using #[derive(Serialize, Deserialize)] to make Serde work with structs
# and enums defined in your crate.
serde = { version = "1.0", features = ["derive"] }

# Each data format lives in its own crate; the sample code below uses JSON
# but you may be using a different one.
serde_json = "1.0"


use serde::{Serialize, Deserialize};

#[derive(Serialize, Deserialize, Debug)]
struct Point {
    x: i32,
    y: i32,

fn main() {
    let point = Point { x: 1, y: 2 };

    // Convert the Point to a JSON string.
    let serialized = serde_json::to_string(&point).unwrap();

    // Prints serialized = {"x":1,"y":2}
    println!("serialized = {}", serialized);

    // Convert the JSON string back to a Point.
    let deserialized: Point = serde_json::from_str(&serialized).unwrap();

    // Prints deserialized = Point { x: 1, y: 2 }
    println!("deserialized = {:?}", deserialized);

Getting help

Serde is one of the most widely used Rust libraries so any place that Rustaceans congregate will be able to help you out. For chat, consider trying the #rust-questions or #rust-beginners channels of the unofficial community Discord (invite:, the #rust-usage or #beginners channels of the official Rust Project Discord (invite:, or the #general stream in Zulip. For asynchronous, consider the [rust] tag on StackOverflow, the /r/rust subreddit which has a pinned weekly easy questions post, or the Rust Discourse forum. It's acceptable to file a support issue in this repo but they tend not to get as many eyes as any of the above and may get closed without a response after some time.

What You Can Learn about Setting from Classic Sitcoms

Giving your novel a strong sense of place is vital to doing your part to engage the readers without confusing or frustrating them. Setting is a big part of this (though not the whole enchilada — there is also social context and historic period), and I often find writing students and consulting clients erring on one of two extremes.

**Either: **Every scene is set in a different, elaborately-described place from the last. This leads to confusion (and possibly exhaustion and impatience) for the reader, because they have no sense of what they need to actually pay attention to for later and what’s just…there. Are the details of that forest in chapter 2 important? Will I ever be back in this castle again? Is there a reason for this character to be in this particular room versus the one she was in the last time I saw her? Who knows!

Or: There are few or no clues at all as to where the characters are in a scene. What’s in the room? Are they even in a room? Are there other people in th — ope, yes, there are, someone just materialized, what is happening? This all leads to the dreaded “brains in jars” syndrome. That is, characters are only their thoughts and words, with no grounding in the space-time continuum. No one seems to be in a place, in a body, at a time of day.

Everything aspect of writing a novel comes with its difficulties, and there are a lot of moving pieces to manage and deploy in the right balance. When you’re a newer writer, especially, there’s something to be said for keeping things simple until you have a handle on how to manage the arc and scope of a novel-length work. And whether you tend to overdo settings or underdo them, you can learn something from TV, especially classic sitcoms.

Your basic “live studio audience” sitcoms are performed and filmed on sets built inside studios vs. on location. This helps keep production expenses in check and helps the viewer feel at home — there’s a reliable and familiar container to hold the story of any given episode. The writers on the show don’t have to reinvent the wheel with every script.

Often, a show will have no more than two or three basic sets that are used episode to episode, and then a few other easily-understood sets (characters’ workplaces, restaurants, streets scenes) are also used regularly but not every episode.

Why We Need To Match Kundli Before Marriage?

When a date is set for marriage between two individuals, perhaps the first thing that the two families do is go for kundli matching by date of birth. Considered one of the most significant and foremost aspects of an arranged Indian marriage, matching Kundli or horoscopes is necessary before two people decide to get hitched, whether they are having a love or arranged marriage. Since matching kundlis can help you to know about any impending problems that await you on the other side of your marriage, experienced astrologers like Dr. Vinay Bajrangi always advise their clients to match horoscopes before marriage to avoid any major mishaps in the future.
Some of the reasons why astrologers recommend using a horoscope match calculator for marriage are as follows –
Compatibility - Kundli matching is important to ascertain compatibility between two individuals in terms of their mental and physical conditions, including mindset, temper, attitude and behaviour. It is considered the basic premise for a successful union. In order to assess that there is a sufficient amount of mutual desirability between the couple, the horoscopes are also analysed for physical attraction, because that is an important tool for a long-lasting relationship.
Finances/Career - Kundli matching is also a way to know about the future prospects of your spouse like career growth, business progress, promotion, financial stability, etc.
Dashas - Sometimes, the negative impact of Dashas (planetary combinations) can ruin your future as a married couple. There is a chance that a person’s horoscope could have Dashas like the ‘Mangal Dasha’ and ‘Shani Dasha’ right since the time they are born, depending upon the stars and the planets’ positions at that time. Such Dashas can create several problems at a later stage of marriage, about which none of the partners can do anything. The process of Kundli matching can help you overcome the negative impact before taking the step towards the marriage altar.
Health – Kundli matching helps you find out about the health prospects of your children, who would be born later in your life. The 8th guna of your Kundli, Nadi, represents childbirth and potential problems that might arise out of it. Therefore, Kundli matching is significant not just for yourself but also for the future generations to come.
Love Marriage – In case of love marriages, matching kundlis or using a horoscope match calculator for marriage is equally important as it helps the couple take care of any possible negative impacts awaiting them in the future. Matching of horoscopes is a sure-shot way to resolve any impending problems for a married couple.

Astrological Combinations for Healthy Marriage

The compatibility of partners as well as their health and finances are all necessary points that should be taken care of before finalizing a match. Birth charts of the two individuals provide all the answers, provided you consult a highly experienced astrologer for the same. In case of malefic effects of the planets, your married life might feel hindrance, which can be avoided with the help of some specific astrological combinations, as given below –

• Mercury and Venus are the two most significant planets in an individual’s horoscope.
• Manglik Yoga, one of the most malefic yogas, is formed in a person’s birth-chart when Mars is in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or the 12th house. This yoga can be nullified only when two persons with similar yoga get married.
• Saturn and Rahu are two other planets that hold great significance in a person’s kundli with respect to his or her marriage prospects.
• When the moon is in the 2nd house of the Venus, it is considered to be highly inauspicious for the bride’s life span.
• The lifespan of both the groom and the bride is similar when the kundli shows a connection between planets Mercury and Venus.
• A groom’s life is at risk when Mercury aspects planets Sun and Rahu. Same is the case when Venus aspects planets Sun, Moon and Rahu.
• An individual whose kundli shows Jupiter aspected by Venus or Rahu aspected by Sun and Moon can expect more than one marriage in their life.

Marriage is a holy union guided by planets and houses in your birth-chart, as well as by a multitude of astrological combinations. Talk to an ace astrologer like Dr. Vinay Bajrangi to know more about kundali matching and its various aspects. What you must understand is that avoiding kundli matching before love or arranged union could keep you unaware of the vagaries of married life, if any. An individual’s nature as well as future is predicted through their kundli and it helps to seek help from a knowledgeable astrologer before making final decision about marriage. Meanwhile, if you want to have your doubts and queries addressed as per the Vedic Astrology, you can connect with Dr. Bajrangi on or on phone - +91 9278665588 / 9278555588.
