Groovy vs Rust: What are the differences?
Developers describe Groovy as "A dynamic language for the Java platform". Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. It makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve. On the other hand, Rust is detailed as "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.
Groovy and Rust belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Java platform" is the top reason why over 38 developers like Groovy, while over 81 developers mention "Guaranteed memory safety" as the leading cause for choosing Rust.
Groovy and Rust are both open source tools. Rust with 37.3K GitHub stars and 5.85K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Groovy with 1.49K GitHub stars and 414 GitHub forks.
Starbucks, Cask, and PedidosYa are some of the popular companies that use Groovy, whereas Rust is used by Dropbox, Sentry, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs. Groovy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 79 company stacks & 73 developers stacks; compared to Rust, which is listed in 39 company stacks and 105 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.
