  • Collection of trait implementations with associated types (GATs?)
    1 project | /r/rust | 15 Feb 2023
    This question is partially inspired by this PR which is kinda trying to do the same thing.
  • dd-trace-layer - A web application middleware for sending Datadog's trace
    3 projects | /r/rust | 7 Oct 2022
    dd-trace-layer is a middleware for sending Datadog's trace. It's based on Tower and OpenTelemetry Rust.
  • GCP firestore and logging SDK in rust
    3 projects | /r/rust | 6 Oct 2022
    I'm pretty sure that GCP's APIs (unlike AWS, which uses Smithy for very genuinely, very good reason) are defined using Protobuf and can be communicated with over gRPC, which means that you don't need to bind via cxx to GCP's C++ APIs. Take a look at this example using Tonic. If you're to use Tonic, you'll also be able to use Tower's middleware (main crate, http-specific) to implement retries, timeouts, tracing, and all the other things you need to be production-ready.

  • How to schedule and run cron jobs in Rust using apalis
    2 projects | | 14 Aug 2022
    For this tutorial, we're going to use apalis to run cron jobs in an async context. We will also look at how to decorate our jobs with tower middleware allowing us to unlock features like retries, prometheus, sentry etc
  • Warp or or Actix Web?
    8 projects | /r/rust | 29 May 2022
    So I have now had a look at Axum and think I will give it a try. In the readme in the repository it says something about tower or tower::Service and tonic, what exactly is that? I do not understand that yet.
  • tower-lsp 0.16.0 — Lightweight framework for building LSP servers
    2 projects | /r/rust | 11 Mar 2022
    Better compatibility with tower ecosystem.
  • ratpack: a simpleton's HTTP framework
    6 projects | /r/rust | 24 Jan 2022
    ratpack is idealized in the simplicity of the sinatra (ruby) framework in its goal, and attempts to be an alternative to other async HTTP frameworks such as tower, warp, axum, and tide.
  • When and how to use traits?
    3 projects | /r/rust | 21 Aug 2021
    i would browse the standard library, tower, nom, or my own bitvec to see layout and trait/record separation. in particular, std::io and std::net may be of use: io::Read and io::Write are pervasive examples of implementing unixy file-descriptor-like behavior in the type system
  • I could use some help!
    2 projects | /r/learnrust | 15 Jul 2021
    We're not there yet. I keep an eye on Tower which looks promising to build on top of. And I keep an eye on MoonZoon (full stack framework, unashamedly opinionated!).
