Open-source Rust projects categorized as HTTP

Top 20 Rust HTTP Projects

  • GitHub repo hyper

    An HTTP library for Rust (by hyperium)

    Project mention: Rust's advantages in 1-3 Slides on Management Level | | 2021-06-15

    The way Hyper uses it to prevent that PHP "can't modify headers because the body has already begun streaming" error at compile time is a good concrete example.

  • GitHub repo warp

    A super-easy, composable, web server framework for warp speeds.

    Project mention: What Are Your Moves Tomorrow, June 07, 2021 | | 2021-06-06

    I use warp to set up a web server and then just have them talk over a REST api that I make with warp.

  • GitHub repo reqwest

    An easy and powerful Rust HTTP Client

    Project mention: Yet Another Snazzy Rust CLI | | 2021-06-19

    "How to choose the right Rust HTTP client" gives a good overview of Rust HTTP crates. In this case, I settled on reqwest.

  • GitHub repo sozu

    Sōzu HTTP reverse proxy, configurable at runtime, fast and safe, built in Rust. It is awesome! Ping us on gitter to know more

    Project mention: ARLB: A very experimental load balancer/reverse proxy based on hyper and tokio | | 2021-03-18

    How does it compare to sozu?

  • GitHub repo woodpecker

    Drill is an HTTP load testing application written in Rust inspired by Ansible syntax (by fcsonline)

    Project mention: [ANN] servant-benchmark v0.1.1.1 | | 2021-04-27

    I've recently published servant-benchmark, a small library that produces request files from Servant APIs to be used by external benchmarking tools. It currently supports exports for wrk, siege, and drill.

  • GitHub repo leaf

    A versatile and efficient proxy framework with nice features suitable for various use cases. (by eycorsican)

    Project mention: Rusticles #15 - Wed Oct 14 2020 | | 2020-10-14

    eycorsican/leaf (Rust): A lightweight and fast proxy utility tries to include any useful features.

  • GitHub repo Rouille, Rust web server middleware

    Web framework in Rust

    Project mention: What's everyone working on this week (23/2021)? | | 2021-06-07

    I'm continuing implementing features, getting Cozy Date app ( ready for launch. The backend is Rust + rouille on Heroku. This week I'm finishing up the app's Account Settings page. I'm merging a bunch of get/check/save RPCs for user postal code, identity, preferences, and account status into a single set of RPCs /get-account-settings, /check-account-settings, and /save-account-settings. This will eliminate some error states and reduce duplication in frontend and backend code. It also moves error message generation code from the frontend to the backend.

  • GitHub repo http

    Rust HTTP types (by hyperium)

    Project mention: Rust crate project ideas | | 2021-01-18

    ...or, if none of those are interesting to you, I suppose you could snipe one of the things that I'd prefer you didn't because they're so effortless for me that it's just a matter of finding the time: * I've been meaning to write a reader/writer crate for GQview/Geeqie .gqv collection files. * hyperium/mime#131 * hyperium/http#460

  • GitHub repo ureq

    Minimal request library in rust.

    Project mention: Why asynchronous Rust doesn't work | | 2021-03-09
  • GitHub repo ntex

    framework for composable networking services

    Project mention: JS faster than Rust? | | 2021-02-24

    ntex is a fork of actix by the previous maintainer

  • GitHub repo binserve

    A blazingly fast static web server with routing, templating, and security in a single binary you can set up with zero code. :zap::crab:

    Project mention: Blog is now hosted on a GPS/LTE modem | | 2021-04-02
  • GitHub repo isahc

    The practical HTTP client that is fun to use.

    Project mention: Is it possible to create a future without using threads? | | 2021-01-11

    isahc uses threads internally:

  • GitHub repo Mockito

    HTTP mocking for Rust! (by lipanski)

  • GitHub repo httparse

    A push parser for the HTTP 1.x protocol in Rust.

    Project mention: lets get 'well done officers' going in the chat | | 2021-05-04


  • GitHub repo routerify

    A lightweight, idiomatic, composable and modular router implementation with middleware support for the Rust HTTP library

    Project mention: New Rust Programmer: Question about Web Serving | | 2021-06-16

    I'd also recommend routerify. It is a small layer on top of hyper but it makes writing HTTP servers quite enjoyable. My colleague dhruvasagar is creating a series of screencasts for building a URL shortener with Rust. Do check his series.

  • GitHub repo goose

    Load testing framework, inspired by Locust

    Project mention: Are you ready for a Goose Attack? | | 2021-03-30

    Goose Repo

    Rust library to parse and serialize async multipart/x-mixed-replace streams.

    Project mention: What's everyone working on this week (17/2021)? | | 2021-04-26

    I find my implementation in kind of gross, but at least it seems to work. If anyone happens to look, I'd appreciate tips for cleaning up this code.
