A async interface for diesel

Diesel gets rid of the boilerplate for database interaction and eliminates runtime errors without sacrificing performance. It takes full advantage of Rust's type system to create a low overhead query builder that "feels like Rust."

Diesel-async provides an async implementation of diesels connection implementation and any method that may issue an query. It is designed as pure async drop-in replacement for the corresponding diesel methods. Similar to diesel the crate is designed in a way that allows third party crates to extend the existing infrastructure and even provide their own connection implementations.

Supported databases:

  1. PostgreSQL
  2. MySQL

Usage

Simple usage

Diesel-async is designed to work in combination with diesel, not to replace diesel. For this it provides drop-in replacement for diesel functionality that actually interacts with the database.

A normal project should use a setup similar to the following one:

[dependencies]
diesel = "2.1.0" # no backend features need to be enabled
diesel-async = { version = "0.3.1", features = ["postgres"] }

This allows to import the relevant traits from both crates:

use diesel::prelude::*;
use diesel_async::{RunQueryDsl, AsyncConnection, AsyncPgConnection};

// ordinary diesel model setup

table! {
    users {
        id -> Integer,
        name -> Text,
    }
}

#[derive(Queryable, Selectable)]
#[diesel(table_name = users)]
struct User {
    id: i32,
    name: String,
}

// create an async connection
let mut connection = AsyncPgConnection::establish(&std::env::var("DATABASE_URL")?).await?;

// use ordinary diesel query dsl to construct your query
let data: Vec<User> = users::table
    .filter(users::id.gt(0))
    .or_filter(users::name.like("%Luke"))
    .select(User::as_select())
    // execute the query via the provided
    // async `diesel_async::RunQueryDsl`
    .load(&mut connection)
    .await?;

Async Transaction Support

Diesel-async provides an ergonomic interface to wrap several statements into a shared database transaction. Such transactions are automatically rolled back as soon as the inner closure returns an error

connection.transaction::<_, diesel::result::Error, _>(|conn| async move {
         diesel::insert_into(users::table)
             .values(users::name.eq("Ruby"))
             .execute(conn)
             .await?;

         let all_names = users::table.select(users::name).load::<String>(conn).await?;
         Ok(())
       }.scope_boxed()
    ).await?;

Streaming Query Support

Beside loading data directly into a vector, diesel-async also supports returning a value stream for each query. This allows to process data from the database while they are still received.

// use ordinary diesel query dsl to construct your query
let data: impl Stream<Item = QueryResult<User>> = users::table
    .filter(users::id.gt(0))
    .or_filter(users::name.like("%Luke"))
    .select(User::as_select())
    // execute the query via the provided
    // async `diesel_async::RunQueryDsl`
    .load_stream(&mut connection)
    .await?;

Built-in Connection Pooling Support

Diesel-async provides built-in support for several connection pooling crates. This includes support for:

Deadpool

use diesel_async::pooled_connection::AsyncDieselConnectionManager;
use diesel_async::pooled_connection::deadpool::Pool;
use diesel_async::RunQueryDsl;

// create a new connection pool with the default config
let config = AsyncDieselConnectionManager::<diesel_async::AsyncPgConnection>::new(std::env::var("DATABASE_URL")?);
let pool = Pool::builder(config).build()?;

// checkout a connection from the pool
let mut conn = pool.get().await?;

// use the connection as ordinary diesel-async connection
let res = users::table.select(User::as_select()).load::(&mut conn).await?;

BB8

use diesel_async::pooled_connection::AsyncDieselConnectionManager;
use diesel_async::pooled_connection::bb8::Pool;
use diesel_async::RunQueryDsl;

// create a new connection pool with the default config
let config = AsyncDieselConnectionManager::<diesel_async::AsyncPgConnection>::new(std::env::var("DATABASE_URL")?);
let pool = Pool::builder().build(config).await?;

// checkout a connection from the pool
let mut conn = pool.get().await?;

// use the connection as ordinary diesel-async connection
let res = users::table.select(User::as_select()).load::(&mut conn).await?;

Mobc

use diesel_async::pooled_connection::AsyncDieselConnectionManager;
use diesel_async::pooled_connection::mobc::Pool;
use diesel_async::RunQueryDsl;

// create a new connection pool with the default config
let config = AsyncDieselConnectionManager::<diesel_async::AsyncPgConnection>::new(std::env::var("DATABASE_URL")?);
let pool = Pool::new(config);

// checkout a connection from the pool
let mut conn = pool.get().await?;

// use the connection as ordinary diesel-async connection
let res = users::table.select(User::as_select()).load::(&mut conn).await?;

Crate Feature Flags

Diesel-async offers several configurable features:

  • postgres: Enables the implementation of AsyncPgConnection
  • mysql: Enables the implementation of AsyncMysqlConnection
  • deadpool: Enables support for the deadpool connection pool implementation
  • bb8: Enables support for the bb8 connection pool implementation
  • mobc: Enables support for the mobc connection pool implementation

By default no features are enabled.
