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?
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Mar 2023
Here's an example I threw together: https://play.rust-lang.org/?version=stable&mode=debug&editio...
Hopefully that gets the gist of how you might approach it. I'm not sure I'd use the HashSet myself, to be completely honest, because it makes it needlessly complicated to get an element out of it. I'd probably just use a Vec.
Hey Rustaceans! Got a question? Ask here (12/2023)!
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 20 Mar 2023
If you have a StackOverflow account, consider asking it there instead! StackOverflow shows up much higher in search results, so having your question there also helps future Rust users (be sure to give it the "Rust" tag for maximum visibility). Note that this site is very interested in question quality. I've been asked to read a RFC I authored once. If you want your code reviewed or review other's code, there's a codereview stackexchange, too. If you need to test your code, maybe the Rust playground is for you.
Why does Rust Playground not have a dark mode?? Here's me using inspect element to make it dark mode on my own.

Well if it's easy, why don't you do it :-) https://github.com/integer32llc/rust-playground/issues/544

Actix Web v4.0 (Rust)

+1 for Axum. I recently moved  the Rust Playground's backend to Axum and have been very happy with it and the team producing it.
How the Rust Playground works?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 18 Feb 2022
As other people have mentioned, the Docker image is not created at code submission time. Instead, each of the six images are built each night and uploaded to Docker Hub. During the build, we do some trickery to compile all of the dependencies so that they are ready to go later on. The playground machines try to pull these containers every so often (30 minutes, IIRC).2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 18 Feb 2022
I was looking into the source code of the rust playground but I'm not sure how it really works, It creates, build and runs a docker container with the code send for each request?
Rust Playground now supports Monaco editor

File an issue here, perhaps?4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 14 Jan 2022
This PR says it's the first stage of https://github.com/integer32llc/rust-playground/issues/357 where this is discussed.
Recommendations on file/dir/module structure, common dependencies, and/or anti-patterns for writing CLI tool in Rust
12 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 18 Mar 2023
The main focus of the CLI tool would be around working on filesystem, and also making several network requests simultaneously. Although some may argue it would be easier/faster writing in other languages, this is more for my own learning to write in Rust. It will be a simple toy project at first, but I'd like to prepare for more complex Rust programming in the future with it. For instance, I see different directory / file / module structures used, Rust version / edition differences here and there, some common dependencies such as Tokio, etc.
Bridging Async and Sync Rust Code - A lesson learned while working with Tokio
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Mar 2023
Our project is based on Tokio, which conveniently encapsulates cooperative task running and scheduling in .await calls. However, users who are unfamiliar with the underlying principles may encounter issues and obstacles.
Rust is ugly, doesn’t even let you write simple data structures, unsafe rust is not even defined, makes the simplest things so hard to write and did I mention it’s ugly?

Ah yes, std, that famous crate that is unusable for systems programming. God forbid anyone do any "systems" programming that uses std.

Rust for backend. Is it recommended?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 28 Feb 2023
The tokio project provides a non-blocking, asynchronous framework (like nodejs) upon which other frameworks are built. As you specifically want to use WebSockets, I'd recommend actix, as it covers all your REST/WebService/WebSocket needs in one easy to use package.
[I made this] – staticPi – websocket forwarder
5 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 24 Feb 2023
staticpi, is a websocket forwarding service. Basically, it enables one to keep a Raspberry pi, or any computer, “connected”, in order to send and receive messages to and from any client, without having to deal with a static IP address, open ports on your router, or similar. Built in Rust, using axum, which in turn uses tungestine-rs for the websocket connections, tokio, sqlx, redis-rs and others.
Just found this distro
5 projects | reddit.com/r/pop_os | 24 Feb 2023
I'd highly recommend checking out Rust if you haven't already. There's some great resources for full stack web development with it. Such as tokio and dioxus.
Is looping in Future::poll safe?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 17 Feb 2023
It's still a possibility, and I remember a discussion somewhere in the Tokio community in which they wanted to solve potential blocking in this and similar combinators reliably by having "leaf" streams return Poll::Pending once in a while even when the stream is ready. See also this PR providing a cooperative solution.2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 17 Feb 2023
There's now also consume_budget (PR #4498) for tasks that don't need any Tokio-managed resources to opt-in to cooperative scheduling anyway.
cargo-semver-checks v0.18.0: rustdoc caching, new lints & more
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 13 Feb 2023
Not all projects want semver-minor lints. That's fine! Tokio started using cargo-semver-checks and wanted to disable minor lints, and the new --release-type flag allows doing that — see the link above for details.
