Crate limiting_factor[][src]

Expand description

A library with components to implement a REST API.

The goal of this crate is to provide:

  • boilerplate to parse environment and run a Rocket server
  • glue code for Rocket and Diesel to use a database in the web service
  • standard API replies

That allows an API or a back-end web server to focus on requests and data model.


A simple server serving a 200 ALIVE response on /status :

use limiting_factor::kernel::DefaultApplication;

pub fn run () {
    let routes = routes![


pub fn status() -> &'static str {

Replacing DefaultApplication by MinimalApplication allows to use a lighter version of the library without Diesel dependencies or database use.
