  • Is Rust good choice for the backend of any mobile application?
    4 projects | | 10 Sep 2022
    I'm developing the backend of in Rust. Async Rust is not productive yet, so I tried rouille http server which lets me write non-async request handlers. Unfortunately, it uses an unbounded thread pool and falls down under load . Then I tried Tide and a threadpool to call my non-async API handlers. This worked, but was really ugly, and I had issues with uploads after deploying to Heroku .

  • Hey rustaceans, which web framework you guys suggest for a small application?
    7 projects | | 27 Jul 2022
    Because you suggested it might be small I’d suggest tide. it is the flask/express/sinatra of rust: it handles routing, dealing with http parsing, and building http responses, and thats pretty much it. I havent done a thorough comparison, but my guess is its dependency footprint is a bit smaller (comparatively to other frameworks), which is nice.
  • Warp or or Actix Web?

    I enjoy the API of tide, but development seems to have slowed down a bit compared to other frameworks

    I’d suggest taking a look at tide! I’ve used it for a bunch of projects and it feels exactly like the rust version of flask/express/sinatra. I’m pretty sure the same people that contribute to it have also worked on the async-std crate which is also very nice
  • Is Rust Web Yet?

    > Yes! And it's freaking fast!

    Going by these benchmarks (click around to find your own use case) Rust is definitely fast, but not (much) faster than many other languages, including Javascript.

    When it comes to JSON serializers, there is a Java framework that is faster than Rust, which is interesting to say the least. When you start comparing actual fully-features frameworks, many Rust libraries even lose their advantage!

    There are definite benefits to Rust web frameworks (despite the minimal speed diff, Rocket or similar can have less than half the RAM requirements that other languages run into!) but just because Rust compiles to machine code doesn't mean it'll revolutionize your web application.

    > These provide everything you’d expect from a web framework, from routing and middleware, to templating, and JSON/form handling.

    One problem I've run into is that I wanted to give Rust a try for a basic CRUD application but the features just weren't built in or available in packages. Some frameworks were missing CSRF, others were missing multipart/form uploads, and so on. Online discussions often end up concluding that "it's easy to write the middleware yourself, see this hacky POC", but this type of code is easy to mess up and easy to break with API upgrades.

    Tide and Warp seem to have matured quite well, so I guess I'll have to give them a go at some point, but I'm a little sceptical. The status of this issue ( is a little disheartening...

    There's lots of HTTP servers and libraries for Rust. Most are built on top of hyper, or alternatively there's simpler libraries such as tiny_http. Or, if you're looking for something more high-level there are options such as Actix Web, Axum, Tide, Poem, or Rocket.
  • ratpack: a simpleton's HTTP framework
    6 projects | | 24 Jan 2022
    ratpack is idealized in the simplicity of the sinatra (ruby) framework in its goal, and attempts to be an alternative to other async HTTP frameworks such as tower, warp, axum, and tide.
