  1. There is problem with using diesel as shown in this article – diesel operations are blocking and their are used in async functions – so they will block whole task – as it’ll work with current somehow with current tokio, which is multithreaded – so they will be other executor threads to handle other tasks, it’s still not good practice and should be avoided. Easy fix would be to use spawn_blocking to run diesel ops in separate thread pool. For some details look at this discussion https://github.com/diesel-rs/diesel/issues/399#issuecomment-567004570

  2. That’s really destructive tutorial!

    You shopuld cal blocking code (Diesel) inside `actix_web::web::block` or you would block eventloop.

  3. I’m going to recommend to anyone reading this, to just go straight to the github at the bottom of the article. Almost every step is different than what you read. Also, if you already have git installed, then you already have openssl so don’t worry about that step!
