Fej is a RESTful API that does lots of different things. It started as an experiment to learn Rust, but has grown into a full-on passion project.

Project Structure

The src folder contains subfolders for the various binaries and the main library, called fej. The biggest binary is called server, which is the binary that actually runs the Rocket.rs web server. All the others are utility programs, mostly consisting of scrapers for various services.

Version 1.1 also introduces the use of a database, namely PostgreSQL 13.


See roadmap.md.


To make development more consistent (and keep my computer a bit cleaner) I've decided to run the entire toolchain using Docker, with Alpine Linux base images. This also allows me to make really small final images. Technically, Docker is the only dependency you need to contribute to this project (not accounting for language servers etc.).

A Bash script is provided to speed up development on the various binaries. It aids in starting up the containers, choosing which binary to run etc. A quick rundown of its most important features:

# By default, it compiles the 'server' binary (but doesn't run it)

# The first argument is the action you wish to perform, the second on which
# binary (not all commands need a binary as input, so they just ignore it)
# For example, this will run the binary called server
./fejctl r server

# This runs the tests (all commands also have their full name if you want)
./fejctl t
./fejctl test

# These attach to the two containers
./fejctl sh   # Opens a new root shell inside the 'fej' container
./fejctl psql # Open a new psql shell in the fej database
