  • Implementing the Health Check API Pattern with Rust | 2021-10-24
    In this blog post, we are going to implement the Health Check API pattern using the actix-web web framework that uses sqlx to connect to a local PostgreSQL database instance.
  • Web framework for production use | 2021-08-29
    I used actix-web framework, but recently switched to axum in one of my projects, and it's really nice, the community is very helpful, and there's a good documentation, I don't like few things in actix-web, for example if you want stable you need to use old Tokio 0.x, while most crates are now running 1.x, and those aren't compatible with each other. Axum is also much more modular, it uses few existing crates such as hyper, http and etc, where actix-web makes it's own actix-http. If anyone is interested, here's the project I'm talking about.
  • What is the way to use a router with Hyper/Tokio? | 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".
  • "Real time" REST API and api key validation | 2021-08-13
    We are building real time (less than 100ms response) Rest API by using (at the moment) and looking for a solution to validate API key on each client request.
  • Switching from Laravel (PHP) to ASP.NET (C#) | 2021-08-08 is the Rust framework that I now use most of the time (with some It's low level but you also just define a whole endpoint with `#[get("/hello//")]` before a function with a `name` and `age` parameter `fn hello(name: &str, age: u8) -> String {`, not something that is expected of a low level language. Also it runs extremely well on linux.
  • Serverless GraphQL in Rust with Diana | 2021-07-08
    Right now, Diana supports integration with Actix Web and AWS Lambda (including derivatives like Netlify) out of the box, with support for more platforms coming soon! You can read Diana's documentation in the book.
  • Simple/fast http server lib for dynamic binary content? | 2021-07-06
    I normally use for this sort of thing for two reasons:
  • Rust e eu – como tem sido a experiência e minha bibliografia comentada! | 2021-06-13
    Actix Web
  • Newbie frustration: can we KISS more? | 2021-06-08
    Why not use something like actix-web that is more "complete"?
  • Rust servers is down | 2021-06-04
    Is anyone having this problem? I can't connect to, and servers. I would play at, but people out there is really toxic. I heard that Rust is getting an update while playing in a Rust server, just then rust server freezes and goes down.
  • Web กับ process thread และอื่น ๆ | 2021-06-04
  • Coming to Rust from Django | 2021-05-25
    If you ever feel like going for the "tried all the big names" achievement, the one that jockeys for "most popular" position with Rocket is Actix Web.
  • What you don't like about Rust? | 2021-05-17
    Only thing I don't like so far is having tons of boilerplate to have my struct fields correctly typed between my actix rest facade and the underlying tonic grpc microservices (having copycat structs with same fields but some casted to ::uuid::Uuid instead of ::std::string::String, or some to::chrono::DateTime instead of ::std::option::Option, and so on). That's not really Rust's fault at all, but I wish there was a better way (if ever there is that I'm unaware of, please point me out in the right direction).
  • How to run a pre-release cargo | 2021-05-15
    In this specific case, you can just specify a pre-release version like "4.0.0-beta.6". You can see all the versions of actix-web here.
  • I'm considering Rust, Go, or Julia for my next language and I'd like to hear your thoughts on these | 2021-04-16
    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.
