Create bulletproof, high-performance web apps and servers with Rust.
In Rust Web Development you will learn:
Handling the borrow checker in an asynchronous environment
Learning the ingredients of an asynchronous Rust stack
Creating web APIs and using JSON in Rust
Graceful error handling
Testing, tracing, logging, and debugging
Deploying Rust applications
Efficient database access
Rust Web Development is a pragmatic, hands-on guide to creating server-based web applications with Rust. If you’ve designed web servers using Java, NodeJS, or PHP, you’ll instantly fall in love with the performance and development experience Rust delivers. Hit the ground running! Author Bastian Gruber’s sage advice makes it easy to start tackling complex problems with Rust. You’ll learn how to work efficiently using pure Rust, along with important Rust libraries such as tokio for async runtimes, warp for web servers and APIs, and reqwest to run external HTTP requests.
About the technology
If you’re sick of cookie-cutter web development tools that are slow, resource hungry, and unstable, Rust is the solution. Rust services deliver rock-solid safety guarantees, an amazing developer experience, and even a compiler that automatically prevents common mistakes!
About the book
Rust Web Development, teaches you to build server-side web apps using Rust, along with important Rust libraries like tokio for async runtimes, warp for web servers and APIs, and reqwest to run external HTTP requests. The book is packed full of examples, code samples, and pro tips for setting up your projects and organizing your code. As you go, you’ll build a complete Q&A web service and iterate on your code chapter-by-chapter, just like a real development project.
