Introduction Rust has gained a lot of traction recently. I was chatting with a friend about building web applications with rust, and mentioned how rocket makes it easier and enjoyable. I figured it might be a good time to pick rust up now. It does not take long to refamiliarize myself with rust and rocket, and I ended up building a tiny and dumb web application with it. My plan was to further polish it and make it a NixOS service, so that I can easily spin it up on all my NixOS powered machines.
