    Project mention: bev | | 2022-12-01

    If you're going with a web app, then it's perfectly fine. Rust has a bunch of decent web backend frameworks, like actix or axum, and db libraries like sqlx. You won't have quite the plugin selection like you would with say, python/django or node.js etc. but it's definitely fairly usable.

  • hyper

    If one were to undertake a project of developing something like this, which is the best web framework for it. I did some cursory research and discovered these back-end frameworks - actix, axum, poem, salvo, warp, gotham and rocket.

  • ws-rs

    Lightweight, event-driven WebSockets for Rust.

    Project mention: Hey Rustaceans! Got a question? Ask here! (40/2022)! | | 2022-10-03

    I wanted to try rust and developed a game websocket backend using ws-rs. Of course I didn't realize it was hardly maintained when I made my choice. The paradigm was very nice and simple, and it seemed really harder for a beginner to use (tokio-)tungstenite for example...

  • tungstenite-rs

    Lightweight stream-based WebSocket implementation for Rust.

  • 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.

  • cargo-web

  • curl-rust

    Project mention: Curl Crate Build Options | | 2021-12-14

  • 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 .

  • Sapper

    A lightweight web framework built on hyper, implemented in Rust language. (by miketang84)
