reqwest Documentation MIT/Apache-2 licensed CI

An ergonomic, batteries-included HTTP Client for Rust.

  • Plain bodies, JSON, urlencoded, multipart
  • Customizable redirect policy
  • HTTP Proxies
  • HTTPS via system-native TLS (or optionally, rustls)
  • Cookie Store
  • Changelog


This asynchronous example uses Tokio and enables some optional features, so your Cargo.toml could look like this:

reqwest = { version = "0.10", features = ["json"] }
tokio = { version = "0.2", features = ["full"] }

And then the code:

use std::collections::HashMap;

async fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn std::error::Error>> {
    let resp = reqwest::get("")
        .json::<HashMap<String, String>>()
    println!("{:#?}", resp);

Blocking Client

There is an optional "blocking" client API that can be enabled:

reqwest = { version = "0.10", features = ["blocking", "json"] }
use std::collections::HashMap;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn std::error::Error>> {
    let resp = reqwest::blocking::get("")?
        .json::<HashMap<String, String>>()?;
    println!("{:#?}", resp);


On Linux:

On Windows and macOS:

  • Nothing.

Reqwest uses rust-native-tls, which will use the operating system TLS framework if available, meaning Windows and macOS. On Linux, it will use OpenSSL 1.1.
