Statically allocated, initialized at runtime cell.
StaticCell provides a no-std-compatible, no-alloc way to reserve memory at compile time for
a value, but initialize it at runtime, and get a
'static reference to it.
This is useful in the following scenarios:
- You need
&'static T, but
Tcan't be constructed in const context so you can't simply use a
- You need
&'static mut T, not just
use static_cell::StaticCell; // Statically allocate memory for a `u32`. static SOME_INT: StaticCell<u32> = StaticCell::new(); // Initialize it at runtime. This returns a `&'static mut`. let x: &'static mut u32 = SOME_INT.init(42); assert_eq!(*x, 42); // Trying to call `.init()` again would panic, because the StaticCell is already initialized. // SOME_INT.init(42);
- If you can use
alloc, you can use
- If you're OK with
unsafe, you can use
static mut THING: MaybeUninit<T>.
- If you need just
&'static T(instead of
&'static mut T), there's
OnceCell(not thread-safe though) or
OnceLock(thread-safe, but requires
