So, you've decided to write a Rust application with MongoDB, and you're wondering which of the top web development frameworks to use. Below, we give some suggestions and resources for how to:
- Use MongoDB with Actix and Rust.
- Use MongoDB with Rocket.rs and Rust.
The TLDR is that any of the popular Rust frameworks can be used with MongoDB, and we have code examples, tutorials, and other resources to guide you.
Actix is a powerful and performant web framework for building Rust applications, with a long list of supported features.
You can find a working example of using MongoDB with Actix in the
databasesdirectory under Actix's github, but otherwise, if you're looking to build a REST API with Rust and MongoDB, using Actix along the way, this tutorial is one of the better ones we've seen.
Prefer Rocket? Rocket is a fast, secure, and type safe framework that is low on boilerplate. It's easy to use MongoDB with Rocket to build Rust applications. There's a tutorial on Medium we particularly like on building a REST API with Rust, MongoDB, and Rocket.
If all you want is to see a code example on github, we recommend this one.
