Announcing Axum - an easy to use, powerful, web framework for Tokio (Tokio is an asynchronous runtime for the Rust programming language)

Today we are happy to announce axum: An easy to use, yet powerful, web framework designed to take full advantage of the Tokio ecosystem.

Tokio looks interesting:


Tokio is the 'old async rust framework, very well used. But ‘another’ web framework on tokio? There’s already so many, lol…

I was thinking the same ODL… it’s almost up there with JS in terms of numbers/turnover :043:

Although it does feelsmore welcomed/cooler :sunglasses:

Yeah, agree, IMO Rust community should converge on Rocket and ActixWeb and just stop there.

The next natural step would be properly invest in an actor (OTP-like) framework of which, too, there are too many nowadays. :003:


For Rust or in general? Which Rust ones are there?
