  • What are the advantages of using Rust to develop KV databases?

    Perhaps Rust has some nice crates that will assist your development, but you're going to have to evaluate whether their design decisions meet the needs of your design, especially if you want to handle powerloss without data loss whilst maintaining high performance. Here's an example of where a create chose design over performance
  • Why use Rust on the backend? by Adam Chalmers

    SQLx's query macros act like format macros, and the database is apparently smart enough to not treat bind parameters as part of the SQL.

    Yes, but it can also run in 'offline' mode where it builds against saved metadata [0]

    I felt the same way until I found sqlx ( The package lets you write sql in your app with compile-time checks. Was so much easier to get up and running than learning a new ORM.

    If writing SQL directly, what process do you use to update your queries during schema changes? Do you rely on a test suite to catch errors then update queries by hand? Are you using compile-time checks through libraries like sqlx [1]?


  • Improving sqlx-related Compile Times

    You probably know about this already but we've finally landed the change to one file per query in offline mode which should provide both performance and ergonomic improvements, especially when it comes to merging multiple Git branches that change queries.
  • Programming block?

    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, 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): and for good integration of typed sql in Rust or if you want something higher level:
  • Install a CLI in a project (not globally)
    6 projects | | 24 Feb 2023
    It doesn't allow you to install third-party binaries, but it allows you to make your own binaries runnable with something similar to npx. And, as sqlx-cli is also available as a library, you can make an xtask which just runs that.
