Rocket is a web framework for Rust (nightly) with a focus on ease-of-use, expressibility, and speed. Here's an example of a complete Rocket application:

#[macro\_use] extern crate rocket; #[get("/<name>/<age>")]
fn hello(name: String, age: u8) -&gt; String {
    format!("Hello, {} year old named {}!", age, name)

fn rocket() -&gt; rocket::Rocket {
    rocket::ignite().mount("/hello", routes![hello])



, for example, will trigger the


route resulting in the string

Hello, 58 year old named John!

being sent to the browser. If an


string was passed in that can't be parsed as a


, the route won't get called, resulting in a 404 error.


Rocket is extensively documented:

The official community support channels are [

]( on Matrix and the bridged [


]( IRC channel on Freenode at

. We recommend joining us on Matrix via Riot. If your prefer IRC, you can join via the Kiwi IRC client or a client of your own.



Rocket requires a nightly version of Rust as it makes heavy use of syntax extensions. This means that the first two unwieldly lines in the introductory example above are required.

Core, Codegen, and Contrib

All of the Rocket libraries are managed by Cargo. As a result, compiling them is simple.

  • Core:
    cd lib && cargo build
  • Codegen:
    cd codegen && cargo build
  • Contrib:
    cd contrib && cargo build --all-features


Rocket ships with an extensive number of examples in the


directory which can be compiled and run with Cargo. For instance, the following sequence of commands builds and runs the

Hello, world!


cd examples/hello\_world cargo run

You should see

Hello, world!

by visiting




To test Rocket, simply run


from the root of the source tree. This will build and test the




, and


libraries as well as all of the examples. The

script accepts no flags or either the


flag to test in release mode or the


flag to test all


modules individually. This script gets run by CI.

To test a crate individually, run

cargo test --all-features

in the corresponding crate directory.


Testing for the core library is done inline in the corresponding module. For example, the tests for routing can be found at the bottom of the




Code generation tests can be found in


. We use the compiletestlibrary, which was extracted from


, for testing. See the compiler test documentation for information on how to write compiler tests.


You can build the Rocket API documentation locally by running


. The resulting documentation is what gets uploaded


Contributions are absolutely, positively welcome and encouraged! Contributions come in many forms. You could:

  1. Submit a feature request or bug report as an issue.
  2. Ask for improved documentation as an issue.
  3. Comment on issues that require feedback.
  4. Contribute code via pull requests.

We aim to keep Rocket's code quality at the highest level. This means that any code you contribute must be:

  • Commented: Public items must be commented.
  • Documented: Exposed items must have rustdoc comments with examples, if applicable.
  • Styled: Your code should be
    'd when possible.
  • Simple: Your code should accomplish its task as simply and idiomatically as possible.
  • Tested: You must add (and pass) convincing tests for any functionality you add.
  • Focused: Your code should do what it's supposed to do and nothing more.

All pull requests are code reviewed and tested by the CI. Note that unless you explicitly state otherwise, any contribution intentionally submitted for inclusion in Rocket by you shall be dual licensed under the MIT License and Apache License, Version 2.0, without any additional terms or conditions.
