The ins and outs of Rocket, in detail.


Rocket requires a recent nightly version of Rust. We recommend you use rustup to install or configure such a version. If you don’t have Rust installed, the getting started section guides you through installing Rust.

Running Examples#

The absolute fastest way to start experimenting with Rocket is to clone the Rocket repository and run the included examples in the examples/ directory. For instance, the following set of commands runs the hello_world example:

git clone
cd rocket/examples/hello_world
cargo run

There are numerous examples. They can all be run with cargo run.
