    Project mention: I'm considering Rust, Go, or Julia for my next language and I'd like to hear your thoughts on these | | 2021-04-16

    With the tokio crate, you have all the tools you need to create concurrent programs that use futures (abstract threads) instead of OS threads, which is more energy efficient and faster for I/O-intensive programs (programs that are computation intensive should still rely on OS threads). For web specifically, you have Actix which builds upon tokio and allows you to create web servers extremely easily.

  • GitHub repo juniper

    GraphQL server library for Rust

    Project mention: A web framework I desperately wish there was a Rust equivalent for: FastAPI | | 2021-03-07

  • GitHub repo feroxbuster

    A fast, simple, recursive content discovery tool written in Rust.

    Project mention: Here's my quick tutorial on using Dirbuster! Enjoy! | | 2021-04-08

    Dirbuster always bugs for me, I can't change anything after starting an attack without getting the entire GUI messed up. I recommend trying out ffuf or feroxbuster.

  • GitHub repo sauron

    Sauron is an html web framework for building web-apps. It is heavily inspired by elm. (by ivanceras)

    Project mention: Making really personalised UI interfaces | | 2021-04-21

  • GitHub repo mogwai

    The minimalist, obvious, graphical, web application interface

    Project mention: We'd love to hear your ideas/opinions: SSR in maple | | 2021-03-29

    I solved the SSR problem in my library mogwai using conditional compilation to include an encoding of the DOM element when compiled for non-wasm targets, which you can see here). The extra field ServerNode allows me to provide an html_string function on non-wasm targets. On wasm targets the html_string function is backed by the DOM element's outerHtml method.

  • GitHub repo actix-extras

    A collection of additional crates supporting the actix and actix-web frameworks.

    Project mention: Simple authentiacion in actix | | 2021-03-11

    you can use basic auth. You can do it from nginx too which I recommend as Ngix can act as load balancer, reverse proxy, tls endpoint etc. And nginx is stable too. You can use actix-web-httpauth too.

  • GitHub repo ructe

    Project mention: Ask HN: What novel tools are you using to write web sites/apps? | | 2021-04-04

    That's not the only use of SIMD in the crate (e.g. see, but I haven't looked into exactly where/how it's used further.

  • GitHub repo maple

    A reactive DOM library for Rust in WASM (by lukechu10)

    Project mention: Announcing Silkenweb: A reactive VDOM-less web framework using plain rust syntax | | 2021-04-30

    I take a look at and it seems that it has no persistent storage yet (is this correct, u/simon583?). While other implementations include that, such as

  • GitHub repo localghost

    Ergonomic Rust bindings to the Web platform

    Project mention: Gloo (an official rustwasm project) needs a maintainer | | 2021-03-06

    One potential candidate to take the role of gloo is, the once, on to convert web_sys::Event into rust async future/stream is super handy. There are other modules handling io/net too.
