Elm vs Rust: What are the differences?
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.
Elm and Rust belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Code stays clean" is the top reason why over 37 developers like Elm, while over 81 developers mention "Guaranteed memory safety" as the leading cause for choosing Rust.
Elm and Rust are both open source tools. Rust with 36.9K GitHub stars and 5.81K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Elm with 5.26K GitHub stars and 421 GitHub forks.
Sentry, Dropbox, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs are some of the popular companies that use Rust, whereas Elm is used by NoRedInk, Brilliant, and RolePoint. Rust has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 102 developers stacks; compared to Elm, which is listed in 27 company stacks and 34 developer stacks.

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.
