extensible web framework for rust


Iron is a fast and flexible middleware-oriented server framework that provides a small but robust foundation for creating complex applications and RESTful APIs. No middleware are bundled with Iron - instead, everything is drag-and-drop, allowing for ridiculously modular setups.


Iron tracks Rust nightly, which you can install here.

To get Iron itself, just add it your project's Cargo.toml.

iron = "0.4.*"


Iron's docs are live-reloaded on new successful builds, and can be found here.

The preferred way to get help with Iron is to ask around on the mozilla IRC network on #rust, #iron, or #rust-webdev
