Crate static_assertions[][src]

Compile-time assertions to ensure that invariants are met.

All assertions within this crate are performed at compile-time. This allows for finding errors quickly and early when it comes to ensuring certain features or aspects of a codebase.

Usage

This crate is available on crates.io and can be used by adding the following to your project's Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
static_assertions = "0.2.5"

and this to your crate root:

#[macro_use]
extern crate static_assertions;

Examples

Very thorough examples are provided in the docs for each individual macro. Failure case examples are also documented.

Limitations

Due to implementation details, some macros can only be used normally from within the context of a function. To use these macros in other contexts, a unique label must be provided.

This example deliberately fails to compile
// error: expected item after attributes
const_assert!(true == true);

This can be fixed via:

const_assert!(label; true == true);

This issue can be followed here. Feedback and potential solutions are welcome!
