    Salvo is also great:

  • rustful

  • Rouille, Rust web server middleware

    Web framework in Rust (by tomaka)

    Project mention: An Express-inspired web framework for Rust | | 2022-10-15

    In strongly typed languages like Rust, composing smaller libraries is usually quite painless, so you don't need a large framework.

    Personally for backend Rust I use rouille[0] for the server (it's very simple and async-free), askama[1] for compile-time HTML templates and (if a SPA is unavoidable, as that is of course always to be avoided if at all possible) yew[2] for client-side WASM.

    Now this stack is what I like personally, but there are many options that you can combine, some more full-featured than others. Check out for a partial overview.




  • tiny-http

    Low level HTTP server library in Rust

    Project mention: Is Rust good choice for the backend of any mobile application? | | 2022-09-10

    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 .

    Project mention: i havent touched anything and it does this on its own i have no clue what to do | | 2022-11-27

    Your auth token, stored in your cookies, is not valid for the session.You can clear all browser cache, cookies and temp data to logout. Uninstall any privacy extensions you might have that block cookies and try again. You can get your JWT from the cookies and check for it's exp value just to make sure.

    All communication outside is complete in HTTP/HTTPS. The protocol is also familiar, widely used, accepted, and trusted already. Piping Server is open on GitHub, developed in TypeScript and Node.js. Other implementations in Rust and Go are provided as open-source. The server is designed to keep simple as possible to verify the source and reduce the potential of bugs.
