Here is a reddit post from 2 years back.

Thanks! I expected little more examples even though that web dev is not Rust’s most important specialty.

It is difficult to know unless people come up and mention that they have used Rust for a certain website. I use a chrome extension that detects languages and frameworks used by a website but it doesn’t detect Rust on crates.io

I’ve happily generated static websites using rust updated on a cron job. Seems just dandy for that as you can add in rayon’s par_iter() and get the job done pretty quickly which is great for designing / rapidly trying things out.

Interesting, could you describe more precisely how it works… What SSG you use, and how you update data?

I just rolled my own and then sync to s3. Though it could probably be driven by something like https://github.com/diecast/diecast fairly easily. If your after a dynamic website maybe look at https://actix.rs/ - it’s actor based so should scale fairly well.

Also don’t forget Rust as Wasm looks to be appearing soon in WordPress - that’s 1/3 of the web right there.

Thanks for clarification.

https://lib.rs is written entirely in Rust. Source: https://gitlab.com/crates.rs/crates.rs

For dynamic sites I've found Actix-web nice to use. It feels similar to Node's express framework.
