Chiisai

A micro framework for microservices!

About

Chiisai is a small low level wrapper around Hyper. It aims to take in few if any dependencies and acts as a basic handler for incoming requests. It isn't meant to be used for your website, if you need that look into something like Rocket or Gotham. Instead it's used for microservices, where routing would be useful, but large web frameworks would take up to many resources.

This means you can still write code for your microservice to do what they need and not have to worry about setting up all the nuts and bolts for handling incoming requests or mucking around with low level HTTP internals.

Build requirements

You only need a stable version of the Rust compiler. Due to the use of the ? operator only versions 1.15 and up of rustc are supported.

How to use the library

Put the following in your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
chiisai = "0.1"

Then import the crate with:

#[macro_use] extern crate chiisai;
use chiisai::*;

in your crate root. From here you can set up your routes for dealing with incoming requests.

Example

The following bit of code creates a simple echo server:

#[macro_use] extern crate chiisai;

// Imports traits and the rexported hyper and futures crates
use chiisai::*;
use futures::future::ok;
use hyper::header::ContentLength;


static INDEX: &'static [u8] = b"Try POST /echo\n";

fn main() {
    // Set up the routes and run it.
    // You can set the port as well with a function call
    // before run() to port() by default it runs on 7878
    Chiisai::new().routes(router! {
        ("/", GetEcho)
        ("/echo", GetEcho)
        ("/echo", PostEcho)
    }).run().unwrap();
}


routes!(
    // Each route handler needs 3 things:
    // 1) Takes a request verb needed for routes that use this:
    //    Post, Put, Patch, Get, or Delete
    // 2) A name for the handler type, in this case PostEcho
    // 3) A closure. Closures take a hyper::server::Request type and returns a
    //    futures::future::FutureResult<hyper::server::Response, hyper::Error>;
    //    These types are automatically imported in the routes macro (except for
    //    hyper::Error) to reduce what things you need to import
    (Post, PostEcho, |req: Request| {
        let mut res = Response::new();
        if let Some(len) = req.headers().get::<ContentLength>() {
            res.headers_mut().set(len.clone());
        }
        ok(res.with_body(req.body()))
    })

    (Get, GetEcho, |_| {
        ok(Response::new()
                    .with_header(ContentLength(INDEX.len() as u64))
                    .with_body(INDEX))

    })
);

After starting this server up if you run the following commands you can see that all the routes were implemented!

% curl localhost:7878
Try POST /echo
% curl localhost:7878/echo
Try POST /echo
% curl -X POST -d 'Hello!' localhost:7878/echo
Hello!
