    Rocket is really nice IMO. I'm currently using it for a project. There's actually a lot of good competition in the Rust web framework area, so you have some choice.

    Project mention: I'm considering Rust, Go, or Julia for my next language and I'd like to hear your thoughts on these | reddit.com/r/rust | 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.

  • GitHub repo wpt

    Test suites for Web platform specs — including WHATWG, W3C, and others

    Project mention: The hotdog web browser and browser engine | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-19


    That's not an html parser. It's just some code that regexes strings looking for brackets.

    Projects like this are good ways to learn and have fun, but they're many years away from being a browser, even if we limit the scope to the specs of say 2012.

    Also fwiw, if you're implementing a browser use the web platform tests instead of writing your own:

    Project mention: Bookmark Knocking: A Novel Technique to Hide Bookmarks | reddit.com/r/netsec | 2021-03-22

    Project mention: Beautiful PDFs from HTML | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-04
