  • eww

    ElKowars wacky widgets

    Project mention: How do I autostart Eww bar inside the hyprland.conf file? | /r/hyprland | 2023-09-08

    The reason, why eww would not start, is because i compiled it myself with rustup according to the official documentation ( and not by the AUR. After installing it with the AUR it workes in Hyprland. So in conclustion: If you wanna use Eww on Hyprland, use the AUR method and not the method on the Docs!

  • tracing

    Application level tracing for Rust.

    I don't think you have an active project that addresses all those use cases. There was an attempt in Rust with Toshi that is built on top of tantivy, but the project seems to have stalled.

    Project mention: You might want async in your project | | 2023-09-09

    IO is not a part of the async runtime contract (I don't know if this is good or bad), and Tokio & futures famously have different `Async{Read,Write}` traits. I once had to do this [0] to adapt between them.

    This means that any crate that uses IO will be bound to a limited number of Runtimes. Everything being Tokio-only is pretty bad (though Tokio itself is great), but here we are...

  • async-graphql

    A GraphQL server library implemented in Rust

    Project mention: Dynarust - no excuse for not using rust in AWS now - a DynamoDB ODM library that uses serde_json for mapping native rust structs to Dynamo items. | /r/rust | 2023-06-26

    I have found that the combination of [cargo lambda](, [async graphql]( and DynamoDB is an amazing combination for a backend stack, really cheap as lambdas are pretty minimal and insanely fast with the Rust runtime.

  • poem

    A full-featured and easy-to-use web framework with the Rust programming language.

    Project mention: What is the best API generator for Axum? | /r/rust | 2023-04-09

    I've used FastAPI/Pydantic before as well and it was a very good experience. It has been a while since I used them though, so I forget exactly how they compare, but I do recall it wrote most of the OpenAPI spec. for you. I will also agree when I saw utoipa and aide they seemed to require more boilerplate even though I have not done an actual comparison. Poem, on the other hand, seems very neat and clean and doesn't have any duplication that I can see. Here is the [TODO example](

  • display-switch
