Web Interface for PeachCloud

peach-web provides a web interface for the PeachCloud device. It serves static assets and exposes a JSON API for programmatic interactions.

Initial development is focused on administration of the device itself, beginning with networking functionality, with SSB-related administration to be integrated at a later stage.

The peach-web stack currently consists of Rocket (Rust web framework), Tera (Rust template engine), HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Note: This is a work-in-progress.

JSON API (src/

All JSON API calls are prefixed by /api/v1/. This has been excluded from the table below to keep the table compact.

The web application deployment mode is configured with the ROCKET_ENV environment variable:

export ROCKET_ENV=stage

Other deployment modes are dev and prod. Read the Rocket Environment Configurations docs for further information.

The WebSocket server port can be configured with PEACH_WEB_WS environment variable:

export PEACH_WEB_WS=2333

When not set, the value defaults to 5115.

Logging is made available with env_logger:

export RUST_LOG=info

Other logging levels include debug, warn and error.


Clone this repo:

git clone

Move into the repo and compile:

cd peach-web
cargo build --release

Run the tests:

cargo test

Run the binary:


Note: Networking functionality requires peach-network microservice to be running.

Debian Packaging

A systemd service file and Debian maintainer scripts are included in the debian directory, allowing peach-web to be easily bundled as a Debian package (.deb). The cargo-deb crate can be used to achieve this.

Install cargo-deb:

cargo install cargo-deb

Move into the repo:

cd peach-web

Build the package:

cargo deb

The output will be written to target/debian/peach-web_0.3.0_arm64.deb (or similar).

Install the package as follows:

sudo dpkg -i target/debian/peach-web_0.3.0_arm64.deb

The service will be automatically enabled and started.

Uninstall the service:

sudo apt-get remove peach-web

Remove configuration files (not removed with apt-get remove):

sudo apt-get purge peach-web


peach-web is built on the Rocket webserver and Tera templating engine. It presents a web interface for interacting with the device. HTML is rendered server-side. Request handlers call JSON-RPC microservices and serve HTML and assets. A JSON API is exposed for remote calls and dynamic client-side content updates (via vanilla JavaScript following unobstructive design principles). Each Tera template is passed a context object. In the case of Rust, this object is a struct and must implement Serialize. The fields of the context object are available in the context of the template to be rendered.
