README

It's a template to write rust derive macro.

The trait is designed for named struct.

  • If the field of struct has attribute #[exclude], this.field remain the same.
  • ElIf the field of struct is not Option: this.field = that.field.clone()
  • ElIf the field of struct has attribute #[force]: this.field = that.field.clone()
  • ElIf the field of struct is Option and doesn't have attribute #[force]:
    • If that.field.is_some(): this.field = that.field.clone()
    • If that.field.is_none(): this.field remain the same.

    fn merge_proto(&mut self, another: &Self);
