This is my entry.
I mainly do "server-based" web service development.
but the site should be usable and as nice as possible even with
So while I certainly do RESTful json API:s, I also do
server-side html templateing, css (and scss) minification, etc.
I think Rust has great potential here, partly because of optimization and
execution speed, but mainly because the type safety and fearless concurrency
make it easy to actually get things right and avoid unpleasant surprises at
My wish for Rust in 2018 is a nice and convenient web service
framework that runs on stable rust and gets maintenance and regular updates
for many years to come.
My intent for 2018 is to continue to maintain and improve
ructe (and rsass),
and try to integrate it with the best such framework i can find.
I currently have two web service projects in rust:
homesite is a trivial
example using iron and
(https://img.krats.se/) is a more ambitious photo
gallery / management app using nickel.
Unfortunately, both iron and nickel seems more or less abandoned, as
both still depend on hyper version 0.10.
Rocket.rs seems awesome, but requires unstable rust, and I
would prefer to build my projects with the stable toolchain.
Maybe gotham can be the framework I'm
I think it needs a lot easier request routing and path extraction,
but there seems to be work going on to fix that.
And maybe that is something I can help create?
There are some
help wanted which
might provide good starting points.
And there is the Gotham book
Or maybe either iron or nickel will make a comeback?
There are open issues in both about working with hyper version 0.11
even if they haven't seen much activity recently.
