C++ vs Crystal: What are the differences?

C++: Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized; Crystal: Fast as C, slick as Ruby. Crystal is a programming language that resembles Ruby but compiles to native code and tries to be much more efficient, at the cost of disallowing certain dynamic aspects of Ruby.

C++ and Crystal belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

"Performance" is the primary reason why developers consider C++ over the competitors, whereas "Compiles to efficient native code" was stated as the key factor in picking Crystal.

Crystal is an open source tool with 13.4K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Crystal's open source repository on GitHub.

Lyft, Twitch, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use C++, whereas Crystal is used by Bitupper, Diploid, and mose. C++ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 194 company stacks & 357 developers stacks; compared to Crystal, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

PHP
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
HTML5
HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.

The most latency sensitive parts are written in C++. Due to our interconnected services architecture, we use either Python or C++ for each service, with the performance critical parts being C++14.
