COBOL vs Dust: What are the differences?

Developers describe COBOL as "Imperative, procedural and, since 2002, object-oriented programming language". COBOL was one of the first programming languages to be standardised: the first COBOL standard was issued by ANSI in 1968. COBOL is primarily used in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments. On the other hand, Dust is detailed as "Asynchronous templates for the browser and node.js". Dust is a JavaScript templating engine designed to provide a clean separation between presentation and logic without sacrificing ease of use. It is particularly well-suited for asynchronous and streaming applications.

COBOL can be classified as a tool in the "Languages" category, while Dust is grouped under "Templating Languages & Extensions".

Dust is an open source tool with 1.48K GitHub stars and 136 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Dust's open source repository on GitHub.
