saphir 0.3.5

Yet another http server framework based on Hyper-rs


doc crate issue downloads license

Saphir is an attempt to a low-level yet not-painful server side rust framework

Rust has plenty of great features, but some of them are causing some pain when getting into the web development game. The goal is to give low-level control to your web stack (as hyper does) without the time consuming task of doing everything from scratch.

Quick server setup

extern crate saphir;

use saphir::*;

struct TestMiddleware {}

impl Middleware for TestMiddleware {
    fn resolve(&self, req: &SyncRequest, _res: &mut SyncResponse) -> RequestContinuation {
        println!("I'm a middleware");
        println!("{:?}", req);

struct TestControllerContext {
    pub resource: String,

impl Default for TestControllerContext {
    fn default() -> Self {
        TestControllerContext {
            resource: "This is a string".to_string(),

fn function_to_receive_any_get_http_call(context: &TestControllerContext, _req: &SyncRequest, res: &mut SyncResponse) {
    res.status(StatusCode::OK).body(format!("this is working nicely!\r\n the context string is : {}", context.resource));

fn main() {
    let mut mid_stack = MiddlewareStack::new();

    mid_stack.apply(TestMiddleware {}, vec!("/"), None);

    let basic_test_cont = BasicController::new(TestControllerContext::default());

    basic_test_cont.add(Method::GET, reg!("/"), function_to_receive_any_get_http_call);
    basic_test_cont.add(Method::POST, reg!("/"), |_, _, _| { println!("this was a post request") });
    basic_test_cont.add_with_guards(Method::PUT, "^/patate", BodyGuard.into(), |_,_,_| {println!("this is only reachable if the request has a body")});

    let mut router = Router::new();

    router.add("/", basic_test_cont);

    let server = Server::new(router, Some(mid_stack));

    let _ =;
