This section revolves around simple Actix examples you can get quickly started with by following these 3 steps:

  1. Initialize a new Actix project by running the cargo shuttle init --template actix-web command
  2. Copy pasting the contents of the example you want to deploy — make sure to check the tabs of the snippet(s) to ensure you are copying the right code/file
  3. Running the cargo shuttle deploy command
If you are looking for step-by-step guides, check out our Tutorials section.

You can clone the example below by running the following (you’ll need cargo-shuttle installed):

cargo shuttle init --template actix-web 
use actix_web::{get, web::ServiceConfig};
use shuttle_actix_web::ShuttleActixWeb;

async fn hello_world() -> &'static str {
    "Hello World!"

async fn actix_web(
) -> ShuttleActixWeb<impl FnOnce(&mut ServiceConfig) + Send + Clone + 'static> {
    let config = move |cfg: &mut ServiceConfig| {
