Routerify <> Hyperlocal Serve unix sockets with routerify

Basic usage works by replacing RouterService with UnixRouterService, which adapts the request in order to be compatible with RequestService.

Since routerify requires an IP SocketAddr, the loopback address with port 0 is used as a placeholder. In order to access the unix socket’s peer address and peer credential, the UnixRequestExt extension traits adds methods to the request object.


use hyper::{Body, Response, Server};
use hyperlocal::UnixServerExt;
use routerify::{Error, Router};
use routerify_unixsocket::{UnixRequestExt, UnixRouterService};
use std::{fs, path::Path};

async fn main() {
    let path = Path::new("/tmp/hyperlocal.sock");
    if path.exists() {

    let router: Router<Body, Error> = Router::builder()
        .get("/", |req| async move {
            let s = format!("You are: {:?}", req.unix_peer_cred());

    let service = UnixRouterService::new(router).unwrap();


A Service to process incoming requests. This is adapted from routerify’s RouterService in order to support handling the tokio::net::UnixStream instance passed by hyperlocal


A extension trait which extends the hyper::Request type with methods related to requests served through a unix socket.
