Example application: Rust, Rocket & Heroku

Build Status

Rust is a language suitable for high-peformance, reliable web services. Rocket is a rich, user-friendly web framework. Heroku deploys, manages and scales web applications.

To deploy this application to Heroku, use this button:


Or, if you'd prefer to use the command line, try running:

git clone
cd rust-buildpack-example-rocket

# Install a known-good nightly build.
rustup install nightly-2019-09-25
rustup override set nightly-2019-09-25

heroku create --buildpack emk/rust
git push heroku master

This should make a local copy of this application and deploy it to Heroku.

For further instructions, see the page for this buildpack.

Rocket and nightly Rust

This application works with a specific version of nightly Rust, specified in ./rust-toolchain. The Rocket framework currently requires some nightly-only features, although this is expected to change in the future Rocket 0.5.x series.
