    Project mention: Using Rust to build a web API | | 2022-05-20

    My experience is great. I started with PHP and did a lot of Node/TypeScript (and a little Python) before starting Rust. I tried to develop an API with warp, it was really nice but I felt like it was less maintained over time so I migrated to Axum and I'm still really satisfied.

  • rathole

    Project mention: Why are so many people here using Cloudflare? Aren't you guys selfhosters for a reason? I think everybody here is trying to get away from big world-controlling companies.. | | 2022-05-30

    You can just use a VPS to reverse-proxy to your home server, there's a number of options for this that do not involve handing over your TLS keys, limiting the VPS to denial of service as the main malicious behavior it could exhibit.

    Could sozu or rathole or leaf or exodus somehow help?

  • ureq

    A simple, safe HTTP client

    Project mention: An HTTP request parser with rust and | | 2022-05-23

    After a quick check of the available rust http client libraries I opted for reqwest. It has a pretty simple API and it seems to be among the most used libraries for this matters. But I'm a bit concerned about all its dependencies so I might try ureq later.

  • ntex

    framework for composable networking services

    Project mention: Ntex - Framework for composable networking services | | 2022-06-13
  • Rouille, Rust web server middleware

    Web framework in Rust (by tomaka)

    Project mention: The Rustacean way to build a complete web app? | | 2022-05-02

    Rouille is fairly solid in my experience. Save the pain of async and spend it building software that works. Honestly with Rust's lack of GC you get predictable response times already.

    Project mention: Using ntex instead of Actix? | | 2022-06-08

    Project mention: I made binserve - A fast static web server with TLS, routing, hot reloading, caching, templating, and security in a single-binary | | 2022-06-13

    So I just uploaded all the architecture executables for Android, check it out. And it's not an APK, download a command-line interface app like Termux and run it from there, you can use curl or wget to download it. Let me know if you need anything else! :)

  • isahc

    The practical HTTP client that is fun to use.

    Project mention: What’s everyone working on this week (11/2022)? | | 2022-03-14
