Rust Web Development

will Rust WebDev support ever become a thing on repl.it?
I'm asking about this as I want to host a project here because I can't afford a VPS.

i don't know. You can suggest it in language requests.

Can you elaborate? Frontend or backend? Both are already possible on Repl.

What are you asking for? A template for one of these?

@xxpertHacker i'm actually asking about that for both; thanks for responding! :D

@asemnada991 o_o oh, well, one can setup an HTTP server in a Rust Repl; technically Repl doesn't support webdev for language, so it's equally easy for any language.

Then one can setup rustc to emit Wasm and load it in a frontend document.

A template would be nice; I'll see if I can try to make one myself, it wouldn't be too easy.

Any updates on template?

@itsdharmik Aww, sorry, I never got either working myself. :'(

You can run a web server on Replit in any language. Just start listening on a HTTP port and it should work.

@19wintersp i'll give it a shot and let you know how it goes.
thanks! :D
