Fastest Way to Build & Ship Rust Apps

Get resources and deploy your apps with a few lines of code.

Simple.   Easy.   Joyful.

⭐ If you find Shuttle interesting, consider starring this repo to help spread the word.


  • One-line Resource Provisioning: Get a database, or any other AWS resource by adding a line of code to your main file. To delete one, just remove that line of code. No config/yaml files required.
  • Rapid Development: It takes 2 minutes from project initialization to a deployed project. It takes another 2 minutes to provision a resource, and get it deployed to production.
  • First-class support for popular Rust frameworks: Axum, Actix Web, Rocket, and more
  • Security: Let us worry about the security & permissions while you focus on writing good code.

Quick Start

On Linux and macOS, you can use this install script, which will automatically install the correct target for your OS and distro:

curl -sSfL https://www.shuttle.rs/install | bash

On Windows, you can use this install script to do the same:

iwr "https://www.shuttle.rs/install-win" | iex

After installing, log in with:

cargo shuttle login

To initialize your project, simply write:

cargo shuttle init --template axum hello-world

And to deploy it, write:

cd hello-world
cargo shuttle project start  # Only needed if project has not already been created during init
cargo shuttle deploy --allow-dirty

And... that's it!

Service Name:  hello-world
Deployment ID: 3d08ac34-ad63-41c1-836b-99afdc90af9f
Status:        running
Last Updated:  2022-04-01T08:32:34Z
URI:           https://hello-world.shuttleapp.rs

Feel free to build on top of the generated hello-world boilerplate or take a stab at one of our examples.

Quick Look

Below is a basic "Hello World" application written in Axum:

use axum::{routing::get, Router};

async fn main() {
    let app = Router::new().route("/", get(hello_world));

    let listener = tokio::net::TcpListener::bind("")
    println!("listening on {}", listener.local_addr().unwrap());
    axum::serve(listener, app).await.unwrap();

async fn hello_world() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, world!"

In order to be able to deploy it with a single command, we update the snippet as follows:

use axum::{routing::get, Router};

async fn hello_world() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, world!"

async fn main() -> shuttle_axum::ShuttleAxum {
    let router = Router::new().route("/", get(hello_world));


Now, with just cargo shuttle deploy, you can see your application live. But let's enhance it further by adding a shared Postgres database:

use axum::{routing::get, Router};

async fn hello_world() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, world!"

async fn main(
    #[shuttle_shared_db::Postgres] pool: sqlx::PgPool,
) -> shuttle_axum::ShuttleAxum {

        .expect("failed to run migrations");

    let router = Router::new().route("/", get(hello_world));


Now, if we run cargo shuttle deploy, we'll have an up and running project with a database inside & ready to use.
