CircleCI Rust

A simple synchronous Hacker News API (v0) client library based on reqwest and serde.

The library currently implements no caching. It simply exposes endpoints as methods.

Furthermore, there is no realtime functionality. If you need that, you should probably use a firebase client crate and subscribe to the live endpoints directly.

For an example, see examples/top.rs.
