Pure-rust, network-independent Raft consensus implementation

This is an extraction of consensus and Raft protocol logic, that doesn't depend on network packet representation

Based on original work of Hoverbear



This is a crate containing a Raft consensus protocol implementation and encoding/decoding helpers. This is a logic-only crate without any networking part.

To use Raft in it's full strength using this crate, one should do the following:

  • determine and implement(or take ready ones) state machine and persistent log implementations

  • find or make a part responsible for passing peer and client messages over the wire and pass all these messages from to one of ...Consensus structures

  • define a ConsensusHandler with callbacks doing the job for passing messages generated by consensus to other nodes
