    With the tokio crate, you have all the tools you need to create concurrent programs that use futures (abstract threads) instead of OS threads, which is more energy efficient and faster for I/O-intensive programs (programs that are computation intensive should still rely on OS threads). For web specifically, you have Actix which builds upon tokio and allows you to create web servers extremely easily.

    The minimal installation requires, of course, just gcc instead of build-base. It is, however, not recommended because either musl-dev or libc-dev will be necessary in addition soon after. In my case, installing Rust only was successful with gcc, but Actix Web, a Rust web framework using actors communication, required build-base.

    Hi, I haven't used this framework before, but actix-web seems to have the features you're looking for.
  • Porting a serverless chatbot from Python to Rust | 2021-01-27
    I started with Actix, which uses the relatively new support for asynchronous Rust programming, but couldn't get it working with the non-async Mailchimp crate. I tried writing my own basic calls using the built-in async HTTP client but that doesn't support HTTPS connections without a feature flag. There is example code but it states "As of actix-web 2.0.0, one must be very careful about setting up https communication" without explaining what that setup involves. I saw strange behaviour with initial requests timing out then subsequent requests succeeding, which I assumed was to do with async.

    Actix is usually thought to be more performant and stable than Rocket. Underneath, it works with the actor model used in Erlang and Akka.

  • Replacing FastAPI with Rust: Part 3 - Trying Actix | 2021-01-12
    Not the most elegant of solutions, but it worked. Now seems like a good time, by the way, to take away a point for "MUST have great documentation". While the docs for using actix-web as intended were good, I'm far off the beaten path at this point and will only go further. I didn't find any docs at all to help me with this nor later code, and instead spent a lot of time digging through source code and deciphering cryptic compiler errors. | 2021-01-12
    This GitHub issue suggested using some of the testing tools included with actix-web to achieve what I was looking for. This is the route I decided to take, though it was probably more effort than it was worth.
  • Why You Should Learn Rust in 2021 | 2021-01-04
    Rust has multiple frameworks for web development like Actix Web and Rocket that are very usable and well-built. In particular, if you are looking for pure speed, Actix Web hits the top of framework benchmarks.
  • Replacing FastAPI with Rust: Part 2 - Research | 2021-01-01
    actix-web is easily to most well known, well documented, and well used web framework for Rust. What's more, it is a very active project, already making progress toward Tokio 1.0 (while at last check Rocket was still pursuing Tokio 0.2 integration). It also comes with built in support for input validation and output serialization via Rust's go-to library serde. That means all Paperclip has to do is document those same functions and structures, which it does!
