Seed is a Rust framework that uses an Elm-like architecture to help you build fast and reliable web apps that run on WebAssembly. Here’s why you might want to use it:
Seed allows you to develop the front-end with all the benefits of Rust, meaning speed, safety, and too many more things to count.
The Seed templating system uses a macro syntax that makes Rustaceans feel right at home. This means linting, formatting, and commenting will work, and it’s all in Rust. This is opposed to a JSX-like syntax that relies on IDE extensions to improve the developer experience.
Seed has a batteries-included approach. This means less time writing boilerplate and less time installing dependencies.
And a few reasons why you might not:
- It’s newer. It’s harder to find support outside of Discord.
- WebAssembly is newer with less support. Browser compatibility is at 92.9%.
- Pre-built components are rare. You will likely have to roll your own components such as date pickers.
- No server-side rendering yet
- You may prefer other Rust frameworks like MoonZoon or Yew.
