Iron "is an extensible web framework for Rust."

Anyone familiar with Iron? http://ironframework.io/

Iron is an extensible web framework for Rust.

Description at http://ironframework.io/doc/iron/ suggests:

Iron is a high level web framework built in and for Rust, built on hyper. Iron is designed to take advantage of Rust’s greatest features - it’s excellent type system and its principled approach to ownership in both single threaded and multi threaded contexts.

Iron is highly concurrent and can scale horizontally on more machines behind a load balancer or by running more threads on a more powerful machine. Iron avoids the bottlenecks encountered in highly concurrent code by avoiding shared writes and locking in the core framework.

Useful for app developers perhaps??

Interesting find, good to know about, but not useful for SAFE apps because it is server side.
