reqwest 0.12.5

higher level HTTP client library

reqwest Documentation MIT/Apache-2 licensed CI

An ergonomic, batteries-included HTTP Client for Rust.

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


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

reqwest = { version = "0.12", features = ["json"] }
tokio = { version = "1", 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>>()

Commercial Support

For private advice, support, reviews, access to the maintainer, and the like, reach out for commercial support.


On Linux:

  • OpenSSL with headers. See for supported versions and more details. Alternatively you can enable the native-tls-vendored feature to compile a copy of OpenSSL.

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 the available OpenSSL or fail to build if not found.
