Arc vs Rust: What are the differences?

What is Arc? A dialect of the Lisp programming language developed by Paul Graham and Robert Morris. Arc is designed for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software.

What is Rust? A safe, concurrent, practical language. Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.

Arc and Rust belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

Rust is an open source tool with 37.3K GitHub stars and 5.85K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rust's open source repository on GitHub.

Dropbox, Sentry, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs are some of the popular companies that use Rust, whereas Arc is used by Helpful, Cask, and Icalia Labs. Rust has a broader approval, being mentioned in 39 company stacks & 105 developers stacks; compared to Arc, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

      How developers use Arc and Rust

      Marc3842h uses RustRust

      Rust is used in Shirogane (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shirogane).

      Shirogane is a osu! beatmap mirror built for shiro. We use Rust because of memory safe but still low level and high performance.
