cargonauts - a Rust web framework

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/cargonauts-rs/cargonauts


cargonauts is a Rust web framework intended for building maintainable, well-factored web apps.

This project is a work in progress. It has not been hardened or audited for security. Expect frequent breaking changes. Use at your own risk.

Core concepts

  • REST-first & resource oriented: cargonauts is designed for constructing applications as networks of related resources which support methods. It comes with a JSON API hypermedia API format.
  • Cleanly decoupled & well-factored: cargonauts provides many different building blocks for your application, with clear interfaces between them. Used correctly, it can help you keep your app from turning into a pile of spaghetti.
  • Async always: cargonauts is built on top of tokio; your application will use asynchronous IO out of the box.


Cargonauts is primarily distributed under the terms of both the MIT license and the Apache License (Version 2.0).
