[![Join the chat at https://gitter.im/gotham-rs/gotham](https://badges.gitter.im/gotham-rs/gotham.svg)](https://gitter.im/gotham-rs/gotham?utm_source=badge&utm_medium=badge&utm_campaign=pr-badge&utm_content=badge) [![Linux build status](https://travis-ci.org/gotham-rs/gotham.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/gotham-rs/gotham) [![Dependency status](https://deps.rs/repo/github/gotham-rs/gotham/status.svg)](https://deps.rs/repo/github/gotham-rs/gotham) ## Features 1. Stability focused. All releases target **stable** [Rust](https://www.rust-lang.org/en-US/). This will never change. To ensure future compatibility, we also run automated builds against Rust beta and nightly releases. 1. Statically typed. The Gotham web framework is statically typed ensuring your application is **correctly expressed** at compile time. 1. Async everything. By leveraging the [Tokio project](https://tokio.rs), all Gotham web framework types are async out of the box. Our async story is further enhanced by [Hyper](https://hyper.rs), a fast server that provides an elegant layer over [stringly typed HTTP](http://wiki.c2.com/?StringlyTyped). 1. Blazingly fast. Measure completed requests, including the 99th percentile, in **µs**. ## License Licensed under your option of: * [MIT License](LICENSE-MIT) * [Apache License, Version 2.0](LICENSE-APACHE) ## Community The following policies guide participation in our project and our community: * [Conduct](CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md) * [Contributing](CONTRIBUTING.md) ## Learning The following resources are available to assist you learning the Gotham web framework: * [An extensive set of examples](examples) * [API documentation](https://docs.rs/gotham/) * [Gitter chatroom](https://gitter.im/gotham-rs/gotham) * [Twitter](https://twitter.com/gotham_rs) * [The Gotham web framework website](https://gotham.rs) ## Alternatives We hope you'll find the Gotham web framework is flexible enough to meet the needs of any web application you might like to build.
