According to my
Cargo.lockfile, my website currently depends on 364 crates. So it's really about standing on the shoulder of a carefully-curated set of giants.
364 may seem like a lot (and in a way, it is), but please reserve your judgement until after you've heard about everything it does.
I /love/ posts like this. Amos goes in deep on the decisions he made while re-writing his website from scratch. It's a truly awesome post.
I'm seriously tempted to copy his
SQLite full-text search implementation for this blog, but that's a decision for another time.
