Roadmap to becoming a web developer in 2021

Below you find a set of charts demonstrating the paths that you can take and the technologies that you would want to adopt in order to become a frontend, backend or a devops.

7. Rocket

GitHub logo SergioBenitez / Rocket

A web framework for Rust.

Rocket

Build Status Rocket Homepage Current Crates.io Version Matrix: #rocket:mozilla.org IRC: #rocket on irc.libera.chat

Rocket is an async web framework for Rust with a focus on usability, security extensibility, and speed.

#[macro_use] extern crate rocket;

#[get("/<name>/<age>")]
fn hello(name: &str, age: u8) -> String {
    format!("Hello, {} year old named {}!", age, name)
}

#[launch]
fn rocket() -> _ {
    rocket::build().mount("/hello", routes![hello])
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Visiting localhost:8000/hello/John/58, for example, will trigger the hello route resulting in the string Hello, 58 year old named John! being sent to the browser. If an <age> string was passed in that can't be parsed as a u8, the route won't get called, resulting in a 404 error.

Rocket is extensively documented:
