    🦖 Testing in Production - Synthetic Monitoring on Rust

  • I’ve been working on Prodzilla, a modern synthetic monitoring tool built in Rust. I wanted to share how it's different to existing tools, why I’ve built it in Rust and how you can host it for free on Shuttle, and what I hope to achieve in the long-term.

  • axum

    Ergonomic and modular web framework built with Tokio, Tower, and Hyper

  • Moreover, I especially like where Rust is right now in the web space. It really feels like there’s a lot of smart people working on the next generation of web development tools - it feels like the place to be. There are a range of great open-source web dev tools that are just reaching critical levels of maturity. Axum, which I used to build Prodzilla, feels ready for out of the box web dev, and is crazy-performant, as I write about later. More recently available is Loco, a Rails-like framework for building web applications in Rust that's picking up steam. And in dev-tooling and hosting there’s Shuttle, a 1-line hosting solution for Rust backends.

    The Rust Programming Language

  • Before Prodzilla, I’d read 'The Book' a couple of times, and had made my way through Rustlings, but hadn’t yet built a serious project in Rust.

  • shuttle

    Build & ship backends without writing any infrastructure files.
