This library is a Snowflake ID generator and parser written entirely in Rust.


  • Generate unique snowflake IDs based on timestamp, worker ID, and sequence number.
  • Parse snowflake IDs to retrieve timestamp, worker ID, and sequence number.


Add the following dependency to your Cargo.toml file:

rusty-snowflake = "0.2.0"

Or run the following in your project directory

cargo add rusty-snowflake


use rusty_snowflake::SnowflakeGenerator;

fn main() {
    // Create a new snowflake generator with custom worker ID of 123
    let mut generator = SnowflakeGenerator::new(123);

    // Generate a new snowflake ID
    let snowflake = generator.next();
    println!("Generated snowflake id: {}", snowflake);

    // Parse the snowflake ID
    let parsed_snowflake = Snowflake::parse(snowflake.to_id());
    println!("Parsed snowflake: {:?}", parsed_snowflake);
