Crate rusqbin [] [src]

Rusqbin is a web server that stashes your requests for later retrieval. It is available as both a binary and a library.

Rusqbin's web API is the following :

  • POST /rusqbins To create a bin and get back bin_id
  • GET /rusqbins To list bin summaries
  • GET /rusqbins/${bin_id}/requests To get detailed request information for a bin
  • GET /rusqbins/${bin_id} To get bin-specific information (lists all requests in the bin)
  • DELETE /rusqbins/${bin_id} To delete a bin

In any other case, send requests with a X-Rusqbin-Id header with a bin_id to have your requests logged to a bin for later retrieval.

To use it as a binary, simply install it using cargo install rusqbin and then rusqbin, and follow the simple usage instructions.

To use it as a library from within Rust code:

use rusqbin::storage::*;
use rusqbin::server::*;
use rusqbin::models::*;
use hyper::{Method, Uri};
use hyper::client::Client;
use hyper::client::Request as HyperRequest;
use std::io::Read;
use std::thread;
use std::time::Duration;
use std::sync::{Arc, Mutex};
use std::str::FromStr;
use futures::future;
// Start a BinsServer on port 7000 in another thread, utilising
// a simple mutex for shutting it down
let server = Arc::new(BinsServer::new(7000, InMemoryBins::new()));
let arc_stay_alive = Arc::new(Mutex::new(true));
let bg_server = server.clone();
let bg_stay_alive = arc_stay_alive.clone();
thread::spawn(move || {
  bg_server.run_until(future::poll_fn(|| {
    if *bg_stay_alive.lock().unwrap() {
    } else {
thread::sleep(Duration::from_millis(500)); // wait a bit for the server to come up

let mut client_core = tokio_core::reactor::Core::new().unwrap();
let client = Client::new(&client_core.handle());

// Create a bin via programmatically, making sure to scope the
// storage unlocking with braces properly
let bin = {
  let mut server_storage =;
let bin_id =;

// Fire an HTTP request with the proper X-Rusqbin-Id header
let mut req = HyperRequest::new(Method::Post, Uri::from_str("http://localhost:7000/hello/world").unwrap());
let future_resp = client.request(req);

// Here we use to block on response, but you should never
// do this in production code.;

// Check to make sure our HTTP request was received and stashed
// in our rusqbin server
  let mut server_storage =;
  let bin_requests: &Bin = server_storage.get_bin(&;
  let req = &bin_requests[0];
  assert_eq!(req.method, "POST".to_owned());
  assert_eq!(req.path, "/hello/world".to_owned());

// Cleanup by shutting down our server
*arc_stay_alive.lock().unwrap() = false;Run

In the example above, we use the default InMemoryBins for storage, but you can pass any given implementation of rusqbin::storage::Bins when creating a BinsServer.

Project-specific errors and From implementations to wrap errors from foreign modules.


Various models and associated helpers and type aliases.


Defines a BinsServer, which can serve requests against bins.


Defines a Bins trait for storing Requests as well as a default in-memory implementation of that trait for easy testing.
