Web framework for Rust.

Backend framework
Our review

What we like

Create web endpoints using Rust, bringing strong typing and robust compiler support to web applications. Routes are normal Rust functions with attributes defining their behavior e.g. as a GET handler. Strong typing of inputs allows for easy validation, typed URIs, and reading data into Rust data types, particularly useful for requiring authentication and defining authorization.

What we don't like

Web development really benefits from fast hot reloading, so the slower Rust compile-times can become a hindrance as a project grows (templates can be reloaded independently without needing to recompile). No support for HTTP/3.
