Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Why use Rust on the back end?

Please reach out on the diesel discussion forum about the lacking dev experience. I'm happy to discuss these issues and potential solutions there.
How to create a web app in Rust with Rocket and Diesel
5 projects | dev.to | 9 Mar 2023
As is customary for most web frameworks, Rocket allows you to use object-relational mappers (ORMs) as a data access layer for your application. Rocket is ORM agnostic, which means you can use any Rust ORM of your choice to access your database in your Rocket application. In this article, we’ll use Diesel ORM as our ORM of choice as it’s one of the most popular Rust ORMs. At the time of writing, Diesel ORM supports PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQLite databases.
Hey Rustaceans! Got a question? Ask here (10/2023)!

The Diesel getting started guide is explicitly written for using PostgreSQL as your database system. It is using some parts of SQL that are not supported by SQLite. You can follow the equivalent SQLite code by looking at this diesel example. In the concrete case that error is caused by the fact that only quite new SQLite versions support returning clauses. These support is behind an off-by-default feature flag and requires using an up to date SQLite version.

“watched prime yell about VIM for hours” lmao well done, this got me. A lot of the resources people have already suggested are great! One thing I like to do after going through the documentation for a language is trying to build something like a simple rest api to get a better feel. Rocket (https://rocket.rs) and actix web (https://actix.rs) are popular web frameworks and then for ORM diesel (https://diesel.rs).
Looking for Rust Project Ideas for Semester Project - Any Suggestions?

You should minimise the non-Rust parts though, don't get tied up in anything else or your scope will quickly outgrow a two month deadline. Use something like https://dummyjson.com/ as a foundation to skip the need to find/generate/build database + content, or use a combination of postgres/postgrest to get a quick API + database and use faker to fill it up quickly. That'd allow you to use something like SQLx or https://diesel.rs/ in the application.

Ormlite: An ORM in Rust for developers that love SQL
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 25 Jan 2023
Congratulations to the release. I know all of this is hard work. I would like to invite you to submit a ormlite implementation to the diesel benchmark collection. As soon as that's merged you will get regular reports here. The relevant code is here in the diesel repository.
Destructive move in C++2

Doing arbitrary syntax transformations in procedural macros is not powerful enough? Does C++ have something like serde or diesel?
State of Rust for web backends

I've been building a relatively small project with axum and diesel, and I'm pretty happy with it.
Using Rust at a startup: A cautionary tale

There's also Diesel and SeaORM for higher level interfaces.
Rust tech stack

SeaORM is the most advanced ORM currently available, but a lot of people prefer to just skip ORMing and go direct to the underlying SQLx query builder.
rust web dev??
6 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 11 Mar 2023
If you want to do backend development, give actix-web or Axum a try. If you need templating, take a look at Maud and if you want an ORM, take a look at SeaORM.
Any web frameworks that could compare to Symfony?
10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 9 Mar 2023
SeaORM is the most advanced option right now (though a lot of people prefer to go direct to the underlying SQLx library) but it doesn't yet match Django ORM for offering auto-generation of draft database migrations, which is one of the things I'm unwilling to regress on. (i.e. so all I need to hand-edit is stuff like "that's a rename, not a remove+add" and so on)
Anyone from a Typescript/React background who tried out Rust for the 1st time?
9 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 4 Mar 2023
Last I checked, authentication was weak. SeaORM is probably the most mature option if you're looking for an ORM like you'd find in another ecosystem (if you're willing to explore alternative designs, try using the underlying SQLx directly).

What I really like about it (apart from being a really nicely designed language, that is very expressive, powerful, performant and one of the safest because of the strict typing/memory management), is that you can kind of focus on just programming, without all the hassles around setting up a project, thinking about building/deploying etc. as tooling is really awesome as well (rust-analyzer, cargo, crates.io etc.). Libraries are usually high-quality and innovative (which is IMHO not so true for a lot of different other languages, including the ones you mentioned). E.g. if you want to create a web-server/API you could try something like this (my current recommendation): https://github.com/tokio-rs/axum and https://github.com/launchbadge/sqlx for good integration of typed sql in Rust or if you want something higher level: https://github.com/SeaQL/sea-orm

I've used https://www.sea-ql.org/SeaORM/ successfully. They have a CLI tool that will generate rust code based on your db models
