    Latest mention: Replacing FastAPI with Rust: Part 3 - Trying Actix | | 2021-01-12

    There is probably some standard way to get around this sort of stuff, but I couldn't figure it out, certainly not with messages as cryptic as the ones I was getting. So I turned to a crate I found called warp_lambda. That's right, I found a crate that allows you to run warp on AWS Lambda. As a reminder, rweb, the most promising option from a functional standpoint, is based on warp.
