Rust Websockets

Open-source Rust projects categorized as Websockets | Edit details

Top 7 Rust Websocket Projects

  • actix-web

    Actix Web is a powerful, pragmatic, and extremely fast web framework for Rust.

    Project mention: Is zig faster than rust in performance? | | 2022-01-19

    Depending on what you're doing, it might be. Be careful thought, people might consider your unsafe blocks unnecessary:

  • websocat

    Command-line client for WebSockets, like netcat (or curl) for ws:// with advanced socat-like functions

    Project mention: One Liner for streaming events from one relay to another | | 2021-12-30
  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • tungstenite-rs

    Lightweight stream-based WebSocket implementation for Rust.

    Project mention: Secure Websocket Client | | 2021-11-15

    If you just want to connect to an existing api, async-tungstenite has a connect function. It should work with wss. See some discussion of this issue here.

  • ntex

    framework for composable networking services

    Project mention: Web api benchmarking: Rust (tide) vs Rust (actix-web) | | 2022-01-23

    try to benchmark ntex with three different backends

  • tokio-tungstenite

    Tokio binding for Tungstenite, the Lightweight stream-based WebSocket implementation

    Project mention: Announcing axum 0.3 | | 2021-11-02

    Well, I don't even know what this is. I think you can find your answer in the tokio-tungstenite repo. That's what axum is using under the hood.

  • async-tungstenite

    Async binding for Tungstenite, the Lightweight stream-based WebSocket implementation

    Project mention: generic purpose library in rust | | 2021-03-21

    You can also mix them a bit. The library tungstenite is implemented like this, and allows async-tungstenite to reuse the same logic but in a non-blocking manner. You have the API of the second option, but if a write call returns WouldBlock, you return to the caller and allow them to continue when the buffer is flushed. This can get complicated saving state though (e.g. whether it's currently doing authentication, uploading a file, etc.), but see my note below about Rust's async/await.

  • rust_chat_server

    A very small, very dumb and very bad chat server to send messages in a common place for every participant.

    Project mention: Made a terrible chat server on my local network using actix and websockets | | 2021-12-05
