A collection of crates that provide examples for developing web applications with the Gotham web framework.

All crates include test cases that prove correct behaviour and serve as an example of how to test your applications.


These examples assume a familiarity with the Rust programming language. If you're new to Rust itself the following resources will assist you to get started:

  1. The Rust book
  2. Programming Rust
  3. Exercisms for Rust
  4. The Rust users community
  5. Rust subreddit


We've grouped examples by functionality. Each group provides one or more examples so you can start with the basics and then ramp up as you become more comfortable.

We recommend reading the examples in the order shown below to allow them to build upon one another. Each group provides it's own README with further information on functionality and ordering.
