C++ vs HAML: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is HAML? HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku. Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content.
C++ and HAML belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Performance" is the top reason why over 146 developers like C++, while over 66 developers mention "Clean and simple" as the leading cause for choosing HAML.
HAML is an open source tool with 3.44K GitHub stars and 544 GitHub forks. Here's a link to HAML's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, C++ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 199 company stacks & 371 developers stacks; compared to HAML, which is listed in 113 company stacks and 40 developer stacks.

Personally, I really like HAML. Not having to use open and close tags is a huge time saver. As a result, writing markup with HAML is much more pleasant. HAML essentially forces you to be very strict about spacing, organization, and structure. It also makes the markup easier to read. Protip: I use this pretty frequently: htmltohaml.com
C++ is used in Shiro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shiro).
C++ is a high performance, low level programming language. Game servers need to run with fast performance to be able to reliably serve players across the globe.
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.
Used to write PHP extensions - AZTEC Decoder - License Driver scan - Axis2/C to PHP wrapper and Job-scheduler - Barbershop
Performance, zero-overhead abstractions and memory safety of the modern C++ language make this the perfect language for the project.
