Struct rocket::Rocket [] [src]

pub struct Rocket { /* fields omitted */ }

The main Rocket type: used to mount routes and catchers and launch the application.

Methods

impl Rocket
[src]

[src]

Create a new Rocket application using the configuration information in Rocket.toml. If the file does not exist or if there is an I/O error reading the file, the defaults are used. See the config documentation for more information on defaults.

This method is typically called through the rocket::ignite alias.

Panics

If there is an error parsing the Rocket.toml file, this functions prints a nice error message and then exits the process.

Examples

rocket::ignite()

[src]

Creates a new Rocket application using the supplied custom configuration information. The Rocket.toml file, if present, is ignored. Any environment variables setting config parameters are ignored. If log is true, logging is enabled.

This method is typically called through the rocket::custom alias.

Examples

use rocket::config::{Config, Environment};

let config = Config::build(Environment::Staging)
    .address("1.2.3.4")
    .port(9234)
    .finalize()?;

let app = rocket::custom(config, false);

[src]

Mounts all of the routes in the supplied vector at the given base path. Mounting a route with path path at path base makes the route available at base/path.

Panics

The base mount point must be a static path. That is, the mount point must not contain dynamic path parameters: <param>.

Examples

Use the routes! macro to mount routes created using the code generation facilities. Requests to the /hello/world URI will be dispatched to the hi route.

#[get("/world")]
fn hi() -> &'static str {
    "Hello!"
}

fn main() {
    rocket::ignite().mount("/hello", routes![hi])
}

Manually create a route named hi at path "/world" mounted at base "/hello". Requests to the /hello/world URI will be dispatched to the hi route.

use rocket::{Request, Route, Data};
use rocket::handler::Outcome;
use rocket::http::Method::*;

fn hi(req: &Request, _: Data) -> Outcome<'static> {
    Outcome::from(req, "Hello!")
}

rocket::ignite().mount("/hello", vec![Route::new(Get, "/world", hi)])

[src]

Registers all of the catchers in the supplied vector.

Examples

#![feature(plugin)]
#![plugin(rocket_codegen)]

extern crate rocket;

use rocket::Request;

#[error(500)]
fn internal_error() -> &'static str {
    "Whoops! Looks like we messed up."
}

#[error(400)]
fn not_found(req: &Request) -> String {
    format!("I couldn't find '{}'. Try something else?", req.uri())
}

fn main() {
    rocket::ignite().catch(errors![internal_error, not_found])
}

[src]

Add state to the state managed by this instance of Rocket.

This method can be called any number of times as long as each call refers to a different T.

Managed state can be retrieved by any request handler via the State request guard. In particular, if a value of type T is managed by Rocket, adding State<T> to the list of arguments in a request handler instructs Rocket to retrieve the managed value.

Panics

Panics if state of type T is already being managed.

Example

use rocket::State;

struct MyValue(usize);

#[get("/")]
fn index(state: State<MyValue>) -> String {
    format!("The stateful value is: {}", state.0)
}

fn main() {
    rocket::ignite()
        .mount("/", routes![index])
        .manage(MyValue(10))
        .launch();
}

[src]

Attaches a fairing to this instance of Rocket.

Example

use rocket::Rocket;
use rocket::fairing::AdHoc;

fn main() {
    rocket::ignite()
        .attach(AdHoc::on_launch(|_| println!("Rocket is launching!")))
        .launch();
}

[src]

Starts the application server and begins listening for and dispatching requests to mounted routes and catchers. Unless there is an error, this function does not return and blocks until program termination.

Error

If there is a problem starting the application, a LaunchError is returned. Note that a value of type LaunchError panics if dropped without first being inspected. See the LaunchError documentation for more information.

Example

rocket::ignite().launch();

[src]

Returns an iterator over all of the routes mounted on this instance of Rocket.

Example

use rocket::Rocket;
use rocket::fairing::AdHoc;

#[get("/hello")]
fn hello() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, world!"
}

fn main() {
    let rocket = rocket::ignite()
        .mount("/", routes![hello])
        .mount("/hi", routes![hello]);

    for route in rocket.routes() {
        match route.base() {
            "/" => assert_eq!(route.uri.path(), "/hello"),
            "/hi" => assert_eq!(route.uri.path(), "/hi/hello"),
            _ => unreachable!("only /hello, /hi/hello are expected")
        }
    }

    assert_eq!(rocket.routes().count(), 2);
}

[src]

Returns the active configuration.

Example

use rocket::Rocket;
use rocket::fairing::AdHoc;

fn main() {
    rocket::ignite()
        .attach(AdHoc::on_launch(|rocket| {
            println!("Rocket launch config: {:?}", rocket.config());
        }))
        .launch();
}
