  • Kerla: Monolithic kernel in Rust, aiming for Linux ABI compatibility
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-25
    I just meant that even big projects posted here in the past like the Headcrab debugger: https://github.com/headcrab-rs/headcrab have been seemingly abandoned now.

    Even Rocket https://github.com/SergioBenitez/Rocket seems to have greatly slowed development unfortunately.

  • Gtk4 Tutorial
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-20
    Dropping by to second this statement: it really is a good example of RAD (rapid application development) for desktop software, since it supports a variety of platforms, has a UI toolkit that just works across them and doesn't need to depend on many components on the target system either, or a particular version of a particular runtime. The language is also pretty simple and doesn't feel that much worse than Java, whereas the Lazarus IDE just reminds me of NetBeans - it's no JetBrains product, but it's also perfectly passable and has everything you need.

    The compile times are also excellent, the compiler itself is decently friendly with its error messages and the runtime itself lets you write code that feels safer than C++ in most cases. Oh, and it really comes with "batteries included" - you'll find components for everything from UI elements, to database access, to working with events and such.

    Here's actually a large list of all sorts of software that has been created in it: https://wiki.freepascal.org/Projects_using_Free_Pascal

    Now, the bad things. It's basically dead.

    Sure, there are contributors who keep working and they do have a roadmap here: https://wiki.freepascal.org/Roadmap

    However, there is no hype around Pascal, many people disliked the language for a variety of reasons. No one also seems to care much about its advantages for some odd reason, instead people are talking about Electron, JavaFX/OpenJFX, .NET MAUI/Avalonia or other new technologies that attempt to do what Lazarus did many years ago, with varying degrees of success.

    Sadly, to me it seems like technologies live or die by how much hype there is around them and how many thousands of man hours people are collectively willing to put into them to create brilliance. And Lazarus doesn't have that anymore. Compare both the IDE, its approach to things, as well as Pascal nowadays with the likes of Rust - the latter gets hundreds of libraries created for it, thousands of tutorials and will have developers that literally grow up to like and use it. The former feels neglected in comparison, you won't be doing web development while utilizing super popular libraries that attempt to cover most concerns like Rocket (https://rocket.rs/) does. You also won't be interfacing with the likes of GraphQL, or even RabbitMQ, due to a lack of interest in developing libraries for those, as well as many other technologies. It might be a similar story for something like YAML or TOML.

    Is there any Rust web framework that does not have problem with Slow-Loris ?

  • URL Shortener with Rust, Svelte, & AWS (2/): Simple HTTP API
    dev.to | 2021-09-20
    In this article, we will create a simple URL-shortener API, and serve the endpoint locally. For the web framework, we will be using Rocket to reduce the amount of boilerplate and help us focus on the application logic.
  • Seed – A Rust front-end framework for creating fast and reliable web apps
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-17
    Rocket is the most promising up-and-comer I know about: https://rocket.rs/

    Iron and Actix are the more stable but more complicated ones

  • What is the way to use a router with Hyper/Tokio?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-08-19
    Considering you're new to Rust, I'd suggest checking out something like rocket or actix-web since you're likely to find more features and documentation. From what I know, hyper is more of a HTTP library than a web "framework".
  • Why Does Rocket.rs perform so bad on benchmarks?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-08-11
    I wasn't familiar with this issue before, but I think you're right about there being a bug in hyper where connections don't keepalive correctly: https://github.com/SergioBenitez/Rocket/issues/580
  • Another Backend Option?
    reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-08-04
    There is rust backend framework- Rocket. It's not yet released and still in beta state. I don't have experience with it though but it seems many Devs like it. If Anyone used it, share your opinion down.

  • Is there a Flask like library for Rust?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-06-23
    Rocket looks similar if I recall how Flask looked correctly.. https://rocket.rs
  • Bootcamp "grad" - Am I screwed?
    I once had an amazon employee tell me I couldn't work at faang because I didn't know Java even though I actually do know Java, he just assumed all bootcamp grads don't know anything about type theory. I've actually made a website using rocket.rs (rust) and I've made a small game using C# so I am quite comfortable in typed languages.

  • Rocket v0.5 Release Candidate is Now Available!
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-06-09
    Yay finally, but I am a bit confused by the function signature of the handler function in the example mentioned in the changelog. Why is it not async?
