Another Sample Web App


Happy Friday (for when next it is Friday) everyone!

I’ve been working on a sample Rust web application I thought I would share. Source lives here.

I’ve tried to build something a bit bigger than your average mini sample, and focus on structuring modules and component interactions more than demonstrating the specific web framework (Rocket in this case). It’s also been a nice codebase to play with some new Rust features. For example, impl Trait on function arguments would be a big ergonomic win for this application.

There’s a big waffle-y readme with some thoughts about my design decisions.

I made this because I want to get started live coding, but since I’ve never done it before I thought it would be good to have a solid starting point first.

I’d love to hear your thoughts! I think more knowledge-sharing around application development with Rust would be good for everybody :slight_smile:
