  • Oliver's Reading List

    Over the years I’ve come across a number of documents that I think are excellent, for various reasons. Some deal with development, some deal with thinking, some deal with motivation, some deal with computers, some are just plain interesting.

  • (Not Yet) Getting Started with Pencil

    I’ve heard some great things about the Pencil framework, and the examples on the Pencil website look pretty compelling. Lets give it a try and see how it stacks up against Iron and Nickel! Time to create pastebin-pencil.

  • Performance: Iron vs Nickel

    This is part 3 of the Great Rust Web Experiment. See Part 1 about Iron, and Part 2 about Nickel, and how it compares to Iron. In short, I’ve built the same relatively small web-application in Rust using both Iron and Nickel, in order to get a feel for both frameworks and determine which framework I prefer. But now that I have the identical application written using both frameworks, we have an opportunity to see how they compare, performance wise.

  • Getting Started with Nickel

    This is part 2 of the Great Rust Web Experiment. For Part 1 see here. I’m building the same relatively small web-application in Rust using both Iron and Nickel, in order to get a feel for both frameworks and determine which framework I prefer. The application is a simple Pastebin clone, designed primarily for use with curl but which will also work (to a limited extent) via browser. It supports submitting, deleting, editing, and retrieving pastes (with optional syntax highlighting).

  • Getting Started with Iron

    After having dealt with far too much PHP, and finding python frameworks like Django and Flask ultimately unsatisfying, I’ve decided to try using Rust. The two big contenders at the moment seem to be Iron and Nickel (there is of course also Rocket, but I’m excluding that for now). So I figure I’ll implement the same simple application in both, and see which one I prefer.
