pub struct Builder(_);
Expand description

A builder for creating a UUID.

This type is useful if you need to mutate individual fields of a Uuid while constructing it. Since the Uuid type is Copy, it doesn’t offer any methods to mutate in place. They live on the Builder instead.

The Builder type also always exposes APIs to construct Uuids for any version without needing crate features or additional dependencies. It’s a lower-level API than the methods on Uuid.

Examples

Creating a version 4 UUID from externally generated random bytes:

let random_bytes = rng();

let uuid = Builder::from_random_bytes(random_bytes).into_uuid();

assert_eq!(Some(Version::Random), uuid.get_version());
assert_eq!(Variant::RFC4122, uuid.get_variant());

Implementations

Creates a Builder using the supplied bytes.

Examples

Basic usage:

let bytes = [
    0xa1, 0xa2, 0xa3, 0xa4,
    0xb1, 0xb2,
    0xc1, 0xc2,
    0xd1, 0xd2, 0xd3, 0xd4, 0xd5, 0xd6, 0xd7, 0xd8,
];

let uuid = Builder::from_bytes(bytes).into_uuid();

assert_eq!(
    "a1a2a3a4-b1b2-c1c2-d1d2-d3d4d5d6d7d8",
    uuid.hyphenated().to_string(),
);

Creates a Builder using the supplied bytes in little endian order.

The individual fields encoded in the buffer will be flipped.

Examples

Basic usage:

let bytes = [
    0xa1, 0xa2, 0xa3, 0xa4,
    0xb1, 0xb2,
    0xc1, 0xc2,
    0xd1, 0xd2, 0xd3, 0xd4, 0xd5, 0xd6, 0xd7, 0xd8,
];

let uuid = Builder::from_bytes_le(bytes).into_uuid();

assert_eq!(
    "a4a3a2a1-b2b1-c2c1-d1d2-d3d4d5d6d7d8",
    uuid.hyphenated().to_string(),
);

Creates a Builder for a version 1 UUID using the supplied timestamp and node ID.

Creates a Builder for a version 3 UUID using the supplied MD5 hashed bytes.

Creates a Builder for a version 4 UUID using the supplied random bytes.

This method assumes the bytes are already sufficiently random, it will only set the appropriate bits for the UUID version and variant.

Examples
let random_bytes = rng();
let uuid = Builder::from_random_bytes(random_bytes).into_uuid();

assert_eq!(Some(Version::Random), uuid.get_version());
assert_eq!(Variant::RFC4122, uuid.get_variant());

Creates a Builder for a version 5 UUID using the supplied SHA-1 hashed bytes.

This method assumes the bytes are already a SHA-1 hash, it will only set the appropriate bits for the UUID version and variant.

Creates a Builder using the supplied bytes.

Errors

This function will return an error if b has any length other than 16.

Examples

Basic usage:

let bytes = [
    0xa1, 0xa2, 0xa3, 0xa4,

    0xd1, 0xd2, 0xd3, 0xd4, 0xd5, 0xd6, 0xd7, 0xd8,
];

let uuid = Builder::from_slice(&bytes)?.into_uuid();

assert_eq!(
    "a1a2a3a4-b1b2-c1c2-d1d2-d3d4d5d6d7d8",
    uuid.hyphenated().to_string(),
);

    0xd1, 0xd2, 0xd3, 0xd4, 0xd5, 0xd6, 0xd7, 0xd8,
];

let uuid = Builder::from_slice_le(&bytes)?.into_uuid();

assert_eq!(

let uuid = Builder::from_fields(d1, d2, d3, &d4).into_uuid();

assert_eq!(
