<Cadey> Hi. This page embeds a video file that is potentially multiple hours long. Hosting this stuff is not free. Bandwidth in particular is expensive. If you really want to continue to block ads, please consider donating via Patreon because servers and bandwidth do not grow on trees.
In this stream I implemented the pronouns service and deployed it to the cloud with fly.io. This was mostly writing a bunch of data files with Dhall and then writing a simple Rust program to query that 'database' and then show results based on the results of those queries.
This stream covers the following topics:
Starting a new Rust project from scratch with Nix flakes, Axum, and Maud
API design for human and machine-paresable outputs
