✉️ Rust Channels

= one way, thread-safe queue between threads, multiproducer, single-consumer pattern


Values that can be sent:

  • Implement std::marker::Send: safe to pass by value
  • Implement std::marker::Sync: safe to pass by non-mut reference

Normal channels

  • let (sender, receiver) = mpsc::channel()
  • sender.send(item), receiver.recv() -> iterator
  • Multiple:

Synchronous channels

Channels, that have a fixed size (to avoid ever-growing backlog due to slow receiver)

  • let (sender, receiver) = mpsc::sync_channel(size)
