Default starter for Rust

A basic starter kit that demonstrates routing, simple synthetic responses and overriding caching rules.

Platform:
Fastly Compute
Language:
Rust
Repo:
https://github.com/fastly/compute-starter-kit-rust-default

Use this starter

Using the Fastly CLI, create a new project using this starter somewhere on your computer:

$ fastly compute init --from=https://github.com/fastly/compute-starter-kit-rust-default

Or click the button below to create a GitHub repository, provision a Fastly service, and set up continuous deployment:

Deploy to Fastly

Features

  • Allow only requests with particular HTTP methods
  • Match request URL path and methods for routing
  • Build synthetic responses at the edge

Understanding the code

This starter is intentionally lightweight, and requires no dependencies aside from the fastly crate. It will help you understand the basics of processing requests at the edge using Fastly. This starter includes implementations of common patterns explained in our using Compute and VCL migration guides.

The starter doesn't require the use of any backends. Once deployed, you will have a Fastly service running on Compute that can generate synthetic responses at the edge.

Next steps

Starters are a good way to bootstrap a project. For more specific use cases, and answers to common problems, try our library of code examples.
