Since my initial Node/Rust REST comparison, I’ve wanted to follow up with a comprehensive guide for getting simple CRUD operations up and running in Rust.

While Rust has its complexities, coming from Node.js, one thing that’s kept me attracted to the language is its simplicity. It’s sleek and strikes a great balance between safety and cognitive intuition.

In any event, hopefully this guide helps those that are new to Rust and encourages those who are on the fence.
