Overview of this book

Are safety and high performance a big concern for you while developing web applications? With this practical Rust book, you’ll discover how you can implement Rust on the web to achieve the desired performance and security as you learn techniques and tooling to build fully operational web apps. In this second edition, you’ll get hands-on with implementing emerging Rust web frameworks, including Actix, Rocket, and Hyper. It also features HTTPS configuration on AWS when deploying a web application and introduces you to Terraform for automating the building of web infrastructure on AWS. What’s more, this edition also covers advanced async topics. Built on the Tokio async runtime, this explores TCP and framing, implementing async systems with the actor framework, and queuing tasks on Redis to be consumed by a number of worker nodes. Finally, you’ll go over best practices for packaging Rust servers in distroless Rust Docker images with database drivers, so your servers are a total size of 50Mb each. By the end of this book, you’ll have confidence in your skills to build robust, functional, and scalable web applications from scratch.

Creating custom components in React

When we look at our App class, we can see that it is useful to have a class that has a state and functions that can be utilized to manage how and when HTML is rendered to the browser. When it comes to individual to-do items, we could use a state and functions. This is because we have a button that gets attributes from the to-do item and calls the Rust server to either edit or delete it. In this section, we are going to build two components: a ToDoItem component in the src/components/ToDoItem.js file and a CreateToDoItem component in the src/components/CreateToDoItem.js file. Once we have built these, we can plug them into our App component as our App component will get the items’ data and loop through these items, creating multiple ToDoItem components. There are a few steps that we need to process to achieve this, so this section will be split into the following subsections:

  • Creating our ToDoItem component
  • Creating our CreateToDoItem...
