36. #EveryoneCanContribute cafe: Learn Rust with Rocket web app & Prometheus Monitoring

Learn developing a web app with Rocket.rs in Rust. Add monitoring metrics for Prometheus with rocket_prometheus.


Enjoy the session! 🦊


We decided to go with Rocket.rs Getting Started and learn how to register handles with the web app. We also learned about managing Cargo dependencies and Cargo targets.

After finishing the implementation, we wanted to add Prometheus Monitoring metrics with rocket_prometheus. Since Rocket requires Rust nightly builds, we also needed to use the main.rs example from the async branch.

We used Gitpod and the GitLab Web IDE to develop only in the browser, and allowing everyone to follow async.
