Naming conventions

snake_case to camelCase

The code styles are very different between Rust and JavaScript. The Rust community prefers the snake_case style while the JavaScript community prefers the camelCase style. NAPI-RS will change the case of the Rust code to the camelCase style automatically.

#[napi]
fn a_function(a_arg: u32) -> u32 {
  a_arg + 1
}

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

export function aFunction(aArg: number): number

js_name

You can use the js_name attribute in #[napi] to rename the JavaScript function.

#[napi(js_name = "coolFunction")]
fn a_function(a_arg: u32) -> u32 {
  a_arg + 1
}

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

export function coolFunction(aArg: number): number

The JavaScript function name will be coolFunction, both in the generated TypeScript definition and in the JavaScript runtime:

import { coolFunction } from './index.js'
 
console.log(coolFunction(1)) // 2
