rust-wistia is a rust crate which provides an async wrapper API that lets you easily interact with the Wistia API.

This is inspired in part by wystia, a Python library I created for the Wistia API.

This crate works with Cargo with a Cargo.toml like:

rust-wistia = "0.8"
tokio = { version = "1", features = ["full"] }

Getting Started

Getting started with the rust-wistia library is easy:

  1. Set WISTIA_API_TOKEN in your environment; you can also use the from constructor to explicitly set the token value. Find out more about Authentication and Access Tokens in the Wistia API Documentation.

  2. Add some usage to your application.

    Here's an example of uploading a media, via a public URL link:

    use rust_wistia::UrlUploader;
    async fn main() -> std::result::Result<(), Box<dyn std::error::Error + Send + Sync>> {
        let res = UrlUploader::new("my-url-link")?
            .name("My Video Name")
        println!("Response: {res:#?}");
        // Print out some useful attributes
        println!("Video ID: {}", res.hashed_id);


You can check out sample usage of API methods in the examples/ folder in the project repo on GitHub.

Dependencies and Features

This library uses only the minimum required dependencies, in order to keep the overall size small. This crate uses hyper and hyper-rustls internally, to make HTTPS requests to the Wistia API.

While hyper-rustls was chosen as the default TLS implementation because it works without issue when cross-compiling for the x86_64-unknown-linux-musl target as is common for AWS Lambda deployments, it is still possible to instead use the native hyper-tls implementation, which relies on OpenSSL.

To do this, disable the default "rust-tls" feature and enable the "native-tls" feature:

rust-wistia = { version = "*", default-features = false, features = ["native-tls", "logging", "serde-std"] }
