Create a series of guides explaining different topics in hyper, along the lines of

Some topics that seem like good ideas, though organization can be re-worked:

  • Server
    • Hello World
    • Echo
    • File Server/Reverse proxy?
    • Advanced specifics on server's Http, Service, and NewService
  • Client
    • Getting Started
    • Posting a Request Body
    • Configuration/Using TLS

I'd add "Stopping a server cleanly".

I actually wonder if some of the topics are too small (the routing guide I just wrote feels so tiny). Maybe instead, a list of sufficiently more complicated topics that explore all of the required topics, such as:

  1. hello world
  2. echo
  3. file serving

They would definitely cover all the original topics, but it may not be obvious from their titles?

I think showing the examples is a good place to start. One of the more challenging things about understanding futures, tokio and hyper is context. Examples, such a hello world, show more of that context and give people a better chance of solving their problem.

I do think there is value in doing a deep-dives on a particular topic, but I think examples and spelunking through source is good enough until things really stabilize.

The docs that will exist for the v0.11 release are done. Clearly, there is always room for more, and better, docs.
