Shuttle: A serverless platform built for Rust


Shuttle is a Rust-native cloud development platform that lets you deploy your Rust apps for free.

Shuttle is built for productivity, reliability and performance:

  • Zero-Configuration support for Rust using annotations
  • Automatic resource provisioning (databases, caches, subdomains, etc.) via Infrastructure-From-Code
  • First-class support for popular Rust frameworks (Actix, Rocket, Axum, Tide, Poem and Tower)
  • Support for deploying Discord bots using Serenity
  • Scalable hosting (with optional self-hosting)

Console Sneak Peek (gif)

console-sneak-peek The gif above demonstrates the ease of adding/managing resources to your project(s) in our upcoming console. Bear in mind that the ease of adding resources is already there, albeit without the visualization coming from the console.

Getting Started

The cargo-shuttle CLI can be installed with a pre-built binary or from source with cargo.

Shuttle provides pre-built binaries of the cargo-shuttle CLI with every release for most platforms, they can be found on our GitHub.

Our binaries can also be installed using cargo-binstall, which will automatically install the correct target for your system. To install with cargo-binstall, run:

cargo binstall cargo-shuttle

Although a bit slower, you can also install directly with cargo:

cargo install cargo-shuttle

After installing, log in with:

cargo shuttle login

To initialize your project, simply write:

cargo shuttle init --axum hello-world

Note: if you use sparse registries (which is enabled by default on nightly), you may encounter this bug when running the init command. To resolve this, see this comment.

And to deploy it, write:

cd hello-world
cargo shuttle project start  # Only needed if project has not already been created during init
cargo shuttle deploy

And that's... it.

$ cargo shuttle deploy
   Finished release [optimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 1m 01s
