Building RESTful APIs in Rust With Actix and Diesel


There are many packages and tools that you can use to facilitate your API development with Rust. Rust has a rich third-party ecosystem of crates for building APIs, including web packages like Actix and Rocket and ORMs like Diesel and SeaORM.

This article delves into using Actix and Diesel to build web applications. You’ll learn by building a CRUD API with persistence through Diesel on a Sqlite database.

Actix is a high-performance web framework that runs on the actor model. It is great at handling concurrent requests with lightweight actors that communicate asynchronously. Actix’s architecture promotes scalability and responsiveness, which
