Rust Async Ecosystem Meetings

2019/03/21

  • Reminder to write minutes.
  • Working Group Updates
  • Status updates (10 mins)
  • tide
  • Big rewrite from @Aaron T (https://github.com/rustasync/tide/pull/156)
  • The extractor system was the only place where “magic” happened in tide
  • However, even this was the cause for some confusion
  • The new approach makes the endpoint signature a lot simpler (but also more verbose) and more flexible to extract data from a request
  • The PR moves us closer to the goal of having a tiny “tide core” and then build on top of that (inspired by flask)
  • Since the PR is up we have a much clearer direction on future issues. The goal is to find and group the current sprint goals
  • areweasyncyet
  • not much happened last week, no changes 
  • arewewebyet
  • Need to collaborate with the WASM WG to bring the webassembly topic up-to-date
  • Cleanup is in progress
  • Permissions need to get sorted out
  • romio + juliex
  • @yoshua w Has write access to both repos and plans to move them over into the new org
  • These two play an important role in the ecosystem
  1. Reference implementation for modern futures
  1. Provide a baseline implementation for runtimes to measure runtime performance against
  1. Part of an open ecosystem where we have more than one implementation of the abstractions we create
  • async foundations
  • Not much happening, Discord needs to be updated 
  • Issue triage
  • Moving triage to next week once the big rewrite PR is merged
  • Office hours
  • No office hours this week.
