Great post, you always seem to post just what I'm looking for, are you reading my mind?, be honest, are you?, are you doing it now?

I'm in the look for an alternative to Actix for a plan B or maybe migrate from it entirely, and so far Tide, Warp and plain Hyper looks like my contenders, did you check Tide out? what made you take Hyper instead of their own Warp?

I've not actually used Tide or Warp, but they do both look cool. Honestly, I'm still lurched by breaking API changes and an unstable ecosystem. I stuck with Hyper because it's simple, and while it does still change (recently, to support async/await), it likely won't change much further at this point. All these other tools are built around it, I believe.

I think I need to wait for more complex tools to bake longer before I'm ready to start investing time in things like personal use templates. I want this and the other Hyper templates I produce to kind of be "set it and forget it" to the extent possible, and Tide just ain't it yet.

I also already knew how to use it from before the syntax change. I have no complaints about it, which is reason enough to not tool-hop!

I think to work professional, I have not to use any frameworks for security and also business safe.
I would prefer to build web server using the rust book example rather than using any open source framework.
what is your opinion?
you know what happen with actix then now where is rockets.
how can I assure that the frame wrok does not have any spam.
Do not tell me to check the code because if I go to framework to save time so that will be no sense to study the code

Agreed - though honestly, I wish I COULD use Rocket. It actually looks great, but nightly-only is a complete dealbreaker.
