Before you can start writing a Rocket application, you'll need a nightly version of Rust installed. We recommend you use rustup to install or configure such a version. If you don't have Rust installed and would like extra guidance doing so, see the getting started section.
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
1 2 3 4 5
git clone https://github.com/SergioBenitez/Rocket cd Rocket git checkout v0.4.7 cd examples/hello_world cargo run
There are numerous examples in the
examples/ directory. They can all be run with
Cargo.toml files will point to the locally cloned
rocket libraries. When copying the examples for your own use, you should modify the
Cargo.toml files as explained in the Getting Started guide.
