Octane 🚀

A high-powered web server aimed at minimizing dependencies while maintaining speed. Modeled after Express, a popular Javascript web framework, Octane combines the speed of Rust with the ease-of-use and flexibility of Express to create the optimal user experience.

  • Multithreaded 🚄
  • Asynchronous design 🐆
  • Easy to use, intuitive design 🌱
  • TLS enabled, rustls/openssl ready 🔒
  • Minimal dependencies (working to reduce them more!) 💕

Not production ready

The web server is not production ready yet, there are many things left to do before we are production ready. Use at your own risk! Development is being done right now, lots of things are untested in the library. If you would like to report any details, use issues or the chat!

Basic Usage

Create an octane instance, and then you can register your methods on it using

use octane::prelude::*;
use std::error::Error;

#[octane::main] async fn main() -> Result> { let mut app = Octane::new(); app.ssl(8001) .key("templates/key.pem") .cert("templates/cert.pem"); // Setup ssl

    route!(|req, res| {
        res.send_file("templates/test.html").expect("File not found!");

app.listen(8000, || println!("Server Started!")).await



Documentation will be available on
